    FIRST: I HAVE NO HOME INTERNET

    • I have ipad pro 11” with cellular
    • I have apple tv 4th gen
    i have to put my hot spot on to air play to the apple tv

    is this using my limited hot spot data or is it using my unlimited on device data?

    mirror will not occur without apple tv
    connected to hot spot

    A mobile hotspot is basically an access point. In this case, it uses the data from your cellular sim card plan.
    If you are on an unlimited data plan for your phone, the apple TV will use that data when tethered to the mobile hotspot.

    Not entirely correct if one has Verizon for their cellular service and are talking about their "unlimited" plan. They both use "data", but the hotspot/tethered is usually restricted to something around 15GB and then you get throttled to up to 600 Kbps.

    No home internet here either, but then it’s hard when you keep moving around in a fifth wheel. Something else we’ve learned, never put all your eggs in one basket.

    Mobile devices are on an unlimited grandfathered AT&T, but no mifi devices allowed any more so when ours kicked the bucket, we had to find something else for our laptops.
    Last March, due to being members of a RVing association, we were able to get an unlimited Sprint mifi. We rent it from the association. Truly unlimited but we have been in places it doesn’t work well.
    About a month ago, we got a prepaid Verizon jet pack that is truly unlimited unless you are in a super congested area. We usually aren’t. The Verizon jet pack had to be purchased outright. No contract involved. and ONLY THE PREPAID.

    So we have three options for data, all unlimited. Only thing we need now is a cell signal booster.

    Yeah I had a feeling it would be different in the USA. It isn't restricted in Australia but that's due to different plans.

    there will be unlimited plans but it will cost you.

    will be interesting to see how the biggest waste of money in history the NBN goes when 5g is in full swing and we get some decent data plans...
