US iPad Data Plans Higher Than Most Carriers
Are we paying too much for our data plan? The iPad data plans appears to be more than most carriers across the globe. With AT&T's latest data plans US customers pay $12.50/GB to use data on AT&T's 3G network.
According to a company that has compared monthly data plans for the magical Apple device across different wireless carriers worldwide - we're being ripped off in how much they are charging us for data.
I found it quite interesting out of 35 total carriers, only five charge more per GB than AT&T. I guess we're still lucky - just think, if we lived in France they have to pay $25.47/GB Ouch! In Singapore you could get a GB for 51 cents!
Tableau Software state American users pay some of the highest prices in terms of dollars per GB.
I have unlimited data on my iPad and pay the $30.00 per month but would not have it any other way.

The reason why Hong Kong and Singapore are so low is that those "countries" are really just cities. Meaning that carriers need much less stores and cell towers, so they can charge less. I find it interesting how they only show one Canadian carrier, anyone know why?
I also find it interesting how the Dutch Vodafone has one of the highest prices, but the German one has one of the lowest

WHAT!?!? This is way off. And a bit exaggerated I have a germany plan and pay 25 euro a month for 5gb with o2 blue L. Add the exchange rate, 19% vat and that's $38.00 (got plenty of bills to prove it additionally the link is below) I seen this and about called o2 and requested a refund. To my surprise I got "that price is impossible". O2 has three rates 200mb for 10 euro. 15 euro for 1 gig. And 25 euro for 5 gig.
This article seems to want to stir up more hate. Fine, and also fine to want prices lowered I'm down. But don't lie about it.

nothing new when it comes to Data in the US. US carriers are becoming the same as Europe rip people off and thats the bottom line. And those that pay $30 a month are lucky unlike newbies to ATT we get harsh punishment willingly. Sad

Well too bad AT&T doesn't give a sh*t about what other countries are charging. As long as the dollars keep rolling in they are fat and happy and won't do a damn thing to change it. And for those who think data prices will drop when the iPhone is released to other carriers....psshh....keep dreaming.

Well, the US is fortunate in many other things... The prices are hardly unreasonable even for AT&T standards. Plus, other places just aren't as demanding as the US in terms of internet mobility. And the US hacks everything.

The main thing about this topic was that the US pays more for data then five places across the globe and I found that interesting....
