In Italy there is an operator that give GPRS / UMTS / HSDPA with the 
same tariff:
500 Megabyte/Month -> 20 Eur (after the first renew it become 1 Gbyte, 
and you can renew it more time in a month)

It is not too expensive, for who do't have a broadband connection, 
because here a bb connection cost around 40 Eur / month.
But I don't know how much necessary is to have it integrated in OpenMoko.
