No, you don't need a hot spot unless you need more than 8GB for your laptop because your plan already includes that.

On the unlimited monthy plan you have 8GB of hot spot to share so you can just hook your laptop on to that everymonth.

But, if you need more boost mobile also has a hot spot that come with 10 GB for $50 a month so you can use the phone hotspot witch is 8 GB plus the hotspot device witch is 10GB that would be 18GB.

Thank you!

Will you get a warning when you are almost out of the 8 GB so you don't end up racking up a bunch of additional charges?

Hello jenmikayla:

 

Well from my understanding once you get to 8GB it stops you won't have anymore hotspot till after you pay your bill for the next month. I have used my 8GB hotspot for my children and i have noticed that the data would slow down be for i get to the 8GB but it does not give me a warning message.

FYI - If you do decide to get the hotspot with a data plan, keep a close eye on your data usage on your account page. Mine jumps up exactly 100 MB  over and over again, even just after looking at a few text only web pages. Contaccted Boost repeatdely, but never was resolved. I mean 100 MB precisely, not 98 or 79 MB - 100 MB each time, which you can imagine runs through very fast.

My hot spot Diane work I do paid 83 $it's tolling me my hotspot finish how its that when I got unlimited data I should revisit robust my service in my tv

Hello nelida 😊

I would love to help you as best as I can but can you please elaborate a little more on what you're trying to indicate.
Now from my understanding you said you pay 83 so I'm assuming you are on a family plan which is 80 unlimited talk text data and 8 GB of hotspot if you're using your mobile hotspot it's not unlimited it only provides you with 8 GB and I will be honest if you use it for Xbox or a lot of movie streaming it goes pretty quickly maybe a week or less depends on the usage .
