Man Datatranfer is expensive for you guys?
I pay 21 dollars for 5 GB data a month, and 5 hours of talking , including free texting and MMS.
I've noticed this when you guys talk about regular data traffic as well, on computers - You have limits on those as well, right?
For cell phones, you don't have subsidized phones. Virgin Mobile in the US operates a lot more like a European carrier. $35/month for 5 hours talk, free text/MMS and unlimited* data. *After 2.5GB of data in a month, they throttle the connection. The difference in size of landmass coverage is the difference in price.
Data limits on a regular household line depends on your ISP. I think Comcast is really the only one that has both implemented and enforces caps. The only other nationwide ISP that announced caps was AT&T. I believe they implemented them on their DSL connections, but not on their U-Verse connections. Just changing from DSL to U-Verse, if it's available to you, eliminates the cap.
