Hi. I use a T-Mobile 4G LTE Hotspot as my source of internet at home (no cable ). I have been using this device for over a year. I usually connect my phone (Verizon, sorry), Macbook, and iPad to the internet, and my room mate does the same. We have the 18 GB/month plan with roll-over data, and we have never gone through all of it and always had a full cache of data. In October I got a Samsung Smart TV, which I also connected to the hotspot. However in the past 3 to 4 months we have been FLYING through data, and hitting the limit. When I check the usage on my account it seems like something is constantly downloading or updating. So my questions are:
-Has anyone else had trouble with connecting a Smart TV to a hotspot and going through data like water?
-Does the BingeOn feature (which is enabled for the hotspot, according to my online account) not apply to the TV, or my other devices?
-Is there a way that I can check specifically what devices are using the data, either on the Hotspot itself or on my online account?
I have called T-mobile support multiple times and not received the answer to any of these questions. Any help/advice from anyone is greatly appreciated.
