How is that possible?


I think he means that it uses the phone data, but not the hotspot data. Many plans are available with unlimited data to the phone handset, but a smaller metered bucket (like 10GB) for hotspot data.

Reading the app's description, it's not clear that it can even do this reliably.

I use mintmobile.com ($15/mo for 4gb data). I just upgraded to 40gb (unlimited*) for $30. If I were you I would only connect to the phones hot spot when you need to get online. Then log off. otherwise you will burn through your data plan.

I am getting a trailer and hopefully Starlink will be available this year sometime.
