Data while using hot spot.

It seems like here lately that my service stinks all in general. One I used to be able to download a lot of thing and updated a lot of things without running out of data for a while now here recently it seems like I do  one update on a video game or download one game and bam I'm out of data and then it is throttled so low that there is no point in using it because nothing ever updates. Am I the only one who thinks it is ridiculous to pay what I am paying for unlimited plus to get hotspot and then after the data is used up there is no point in using it anymore. I do not get internet service out where live, other than crazy satellite internet thet is unusable as well, so I got the hotspot added to my phone and it works great when first used then after it says I have gone over my data it not even worth using. I think this is ridiculous.

Unlimited plus has always had a 10 gig cap on the hotspot.  ATT was not enforcing the cap for a long time.
