What's your mobile bill costing you?

Just had an interesting discussion about mobile providers and cost so I thought I'd reach out to the community to get a better cross section so....

4 questions

Where you live? (Be as specific or unspecific as you'd like)
Provider?
Amount of Data you're getting?
What's it cost?

I'll start:
Winnipeg, MB, Canada
Rogers
8 gigs
60 bucks a month

I'm in England.
My provider is Three
I'm on unlimited data in England and most of Europe, America, Australia etc - but no thethering.
It costs me 8.11 - sim only.

You can't get contracts that good any more and I'm living in fear of them taking it away from me - as they did with a guy who sits next to me at work.

USA - iPhone.

$30/month, Sprint, unlimited everything (3 gigs of 4G but I never use it all)

Pretty sweet deal if you ask me, never had coverage problems in the Chicago area.

That's a great deal. That same plan in a different Canadian province would literally be 5x the price ...(does some CDN USD converting). 3.5x the price.

I think we get screwed in Canada for Mobile pricing

Sprint has a $30/month plan? I'm paying $60 something for unlimited 4G on sprint (after all taxes and fees). I could probably get away with 3 Gb, but I do use the data a lot for music streaming and such and I think I'm over 3 GB this month with 5 or so days to go. 3 GB would be pushing it a bit, but maybe I could make do with it.

T-mobile
Unlimited data on the phone, 10 gigs of fast hotspot, unlimited slow hotspot
$70, taxes and fees included

The recent revival of unlimited data by Verizon finally made T-mobile make this plan worth switching to. I was previously paying $70 plus taxes and fees for an old grandfathered unlimited plan which by the end of it had 5 gigs of hotspot (I wasn't complaining too much, considering my plan didn't have any hotspot data to begin with and they didn't have to add it)

I can roam to other countries and get acceptable data speeds and unlimited texting, and they hand out free stuff every Tuesday. pretty nice deal. T-Mobile is the only company who keeps giving me more stuff without charging me more money.

Sure wish they'd build more/better towers, though. There's still some spots in town where I don't get any data, or at least not reliable enough to play mobile games that need a connection.
