You may want to check out the Mobile Share Data plans. They give you a much higher bucket of data that you can use every month and would cover most overages if you have any. You can see these plans by visiting Here
There is no "rollover" or plans that AT&T or any of the major carriers offer that are on a pay per Gigabyte program. AT&T does have a prepaid Hotspot that you can buy by the month, however the price is much higher than what you would be paying now on the 5GB plan.
There is also a new product called Wireless Home Phone with Internet that you could switch to. The plans are much cheaper if you are going to be using a ton more data, plus you have your home phone service bundled in with it. You don't need to use the voice part, but it does give you higher buckets of data at a cheaper price. You can learn more about that device Here. Your local AT&T store might not have this device in stock yet as it has just launched nationwide a few days ago.
Hope this helps!

You can get the hotpsot on a seperate plan than your phone. (although getting the texting may save you money potentially)
Visit www.myattrpc.com to see some of the plans
Mobile Share Value Plan - > +1 Internet Device -> Yes Make this a Data (only) plan)
Then pick and choose 4gb-50gb at your leisure.

I am not suggesting that you look at another carrier, I am suggesting that we have a number of plans avaiable to help with the overages and issues you are having.
Based off what you are describing, AT&T has launched a new device to address replacing home internet with a wireless device (Wireless Home Phone with Internet) that would give you more data for slightly more than what you're paying now ($60 for 10GB of Data)
Additionally with the new Mobile Share Data plans, you can also adjust from the legacy plan of 5GB to a higher plan as well.
AT&T is innovating change in deviecs and rate plans all the time. I would suggest maybe visiting a local store to see all these new offerings.

I looked at the new mobile share plan. It still would cost me more for what I currently have.
Sounds like AT&T is trying to kill off the hot spot martket. The Wireless Home/Internet is not in my area and given AT&T's history, the data prices sound like an introductory rate. Waiting for the real data prices to come out. If $120 for 30 gigabytes is going to be the standard rate, why can't AT&T use the same rate for its hot spots? I not asking for free or umlimited. As I said above, I have no problem paying for what I use. I just think it should be reasonably priced for hot spots as well as tge Wireless Home/Internet.
where are you seeing 120? I see 185 - http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/data-plans.html#fbid=n3olIffjbxt
for data only devices and 225 for smartphones plans - http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/data-plans.html#fbid=n3olIffjbxt
the mobile share plan allows hotspot / tethering
