DON'T BUY VIASAT!! COMPLETE RIP OFF!!!! I changed my plan to the gold plan so we could have more data and it burns up data faster than the lower plans so if you think you get more data.. nope! Now I'm going to end up spending over $100 more than when I started with Viasat just for a few more days of data! Such a scam.. complete crap! GO WITH ANOTHER MORE HONEST COMPANY!

If you stream, and if the source allows it, you should manually set the resolution to a lower level, as higher resolution with streaming will use more data, and your larger plan more than likely allows a higher resolution of streaming for those sources that automatically adjust to available speed.  Old Labs alluded to this above.  

If you do stream, this is likely a significant part of why you're using more data.

But why upgrade to Gold in the first place? You are right streaming is better, but then you max out quicker.

People again falling for marketing and sales hype to pay this company more money. Quite the deal there...for the company not the consumer.

Less can actually be more (See Liberty plans)
