    Wow. I don't know about y'all but that is some serious a55-raping rates.

    It is interesting that in many countries prepaid 3G data at nice bulk data rates has not quite taken off yet.

    It is only now with the iPhone 3G, and new mobility devices by Apple, that honestly, I could plough through 100mb even on an iPhone 3G in like 20 minutes.

    I sense a massive opening for MVNOs who are going to do decent prepaid 3G data rates, alongside the iPhone 3G software unlock which should be delivered in several weeks, perhaps a few months, time.

    In the developed and developing countries, mobile bandwidth is now a resource drip-fed to the people, like clean water and fresh air.

    (Okay... erm. it's a late night, I'll be off to bed soon... LOL.)

    Last insight for the evening.

    Mobile bandwidth is the spice of our times... Travel to any part of the known [world] without moving...

    He who controls spice... controls the [world]...

    In this time, the most precious substance ... is the spice. The spice extends [digital] life. The spice expands [digital] consciousness.

    If we walk without rhythm [using hacked iPhones], we won't attract the worms [of the evil telcos].

    The spice must flow! Who amongst us, will be the Fremen of the mobile space! Who will be our Muad'dib that will break the chains of spice-slavery! (and then become a Tyrant themself)!

    Ah, well, if patterns teach [...] anything it's that patterns are repeated. [AT&T's] oppressions, by and large, are no worse than any of the others...

    so for 1 month of 200MB worth of data you pay as much as you paid for the iPhone. Dear Lord - who are these people that cann add on $200 A MONTH to their plans?!?!?!

    AT&T FORCED me to buy an almost 20% more expensive plan starting in October. I've been with them since it was Celular One. I have three phones. I may leave over this and give up my iPhone.

    What pisses me off the most is that Blackberry users can get a $70 unlimited international plan! Sure, it requires a commitment and is limited to EDGE only (until the Bold), but it's a much better bargain if you're going to be traveling a lot. The iPhone needs a plan like this.... Or at least give 500 MB or 1 GB. I could easily use 100 MB in a day (on 3G). AT&T needs to stop treating the iPhone like it's special with all their "iPhone only" crap, like mandatory data plans and the cruddy international packages.
