    GB or GigaByte is usually storage, drive capacity, etc.
    Gbps is Gigabit per second, speed of the 'net connection.
    8 bits = 1 Byte

    Simple Choice appears to be a mobile internet service by T-Mobile. So, the values that you are seeing refer to the amount of data included in the plan, which is neither storage nor speed.

    Nothing. The hotspot is just a modem. It turns the 4G LTE or 5G cell phone signal into a WiFi signal.

    Now you are confusing speeds with data limits. 4G LTE and 5G are different speeds that cell phones and cellular hotspots connect to the cell network. Yours is 99% certain to be 4G LTE averages about 10Mbps (Megabits per second). 5G averages about 10x faster or 100Mbps (with capability to go much faster). On my cell phone alone, I use about 17-18 GB of data per month. Internet for my whole family at home uses between 400-500 GB of data.

    When you say you have 4G on your fuse now, I believe you are talking about the speed of the cellular connection which is explained above, it's 4G LTE. The numbers that you posted in post #1 is how many gigabytes of data you would be allowed to download at the 4G LTE speed.

    Honestly why can't we have metered internet service that charges up to $60 dollars a month and then stops bothering you. I mean it is just dumb to pay $90 a month. Even with the 5G it is just moronic to have 5G on the go. Your basically fueling progress for the next couple of generations down the road.

    I am going to be honest. I just use the internet to download anything to everything. I do not buy DLC and if I found anything to be DLC I would grab it. I do not care if my ISP stops my connection and or force me to call them. It is just dumb. Beyond that 56K is acceptable. .

    If we had a metered service option that was like ten cents per each gigabyte I would be hooked on that. Again just stop it after $60. In the past I was downloading downloading like crazy, like 100Gigs every night. Today I just do not really feel like searching so much anymore. I only go online with my phone to play Mario Kart or browse for income related stuff. Nothing else really beyond that.

    Over all it is a waste of money and I was better not knowing what was out there. Nowadays I see pre-teens with Monochrome phones because the parents do not want them to get influenced. I wish my parents was intelligent that way. Their are some stuff you do not need in your life to influence you.
