Re: Is it okay to use T-Mobile hotspot as my home wi-fi?
I'm using a Verizon mifi hotspot as my home internet connection (grandfathered under the ancient uncapped unlimited for $50, which for some reason they let me keep and move to an LTE hotspot ), and use 25-35 GB/month with moderately high gaming and netflix/hulu/amazon streaming. But sometimes VZ gets a little shaky, and I've flipped on my N5 on T-mo. Works like a charm. As others have said, you'll have a data cap to contend with. If you plan on doing any video streaming or gaming, forget about it unless you have one of the ridiculously high caps.

If nothing else, give it a try and take note of what T-mo's usage app shows as 'tethered data used' (if you have it installed, it's generally up-to-the-minute in tracking if you click for detailed usage) before and after.
