How are businesses that offer WiFi being charged in proportion to the way individuals are charged?


It seems to me that if businesses were charged at the same proportional rate that individual consumers are charged for Wi-Fi as per gb used per month, they would be out of business! Both my husband and I need to use about 20 gb for our work each month. (He works as a software engineer remotely and I will be scoring State essays which require a non-public network.) So I'm thinking about Panera's and Starbucks who have thousands of people working off their Wi-Fi, using tons of gb. Does that mean that consumers are paying a disproportional amount for individual services? Our charges are huge!

    Sam, Would you explain a little more? Do you have a hub on this? We live in an RV park with poor WiFi. We have a "hotspot" formerly from Verizon, now from Sprint, but 20 gb useage + are very costly. I don't think we can get Time Warner or GF here

    We're paying over $150, I believe, just for our hot spot. However that's for 20 g. (PS where is the pound sign you used on the keyboard? Is it "control something" on our keyboard?)
