Your country may vary.
Here (UK) for $20 per month, you get a gigabyte at about 380K/s, or 3G
for $60. (in addition to the costs of a normal voice contract)
For me - that's pretty much good enough - unless I want to do streaming.
My conclusion is that it varies so enormously that generalisations
aren't really practical.
