Well, in terms of cheapest, I guess that there's probably a carrier somewhere that gives unlimited data for free. I don't know of any that do that, though. I know that in the US, T-Mobile has a semi-unlimited data plan for $6 a month (no cap on transfers, but only web, email, and IM supported). Cingular charges $20, Sprint is $25, and CellularOne is $15.

It also can depend on the device. If the carrier knows you have a PDA type device, for example, they might charge you more for unlimited data.

Verizon is probably the most expensive, at $45/month.

Try looking at Cricket Mobile... $45 per month unlimited data, SMS & Voice. Not sure what hardware choices are though, and what data network they use, or what speed their data network runs at...

helio has everything unlimited (except for minutes talked) including their gps service with google maps. :) BEAT THAT! unfortunately their phones cannot be used as modems with your laptops :(

Sprint's least expensive data service is $15 a month for unlimited EVDO. $25 a month is for their Power Vision Ultimate Pack which has a few more options thrown in but IMO not really worth it. Neither is tetherable without an additional $39.99 "phone as modem" add-on but when you consider unlimited EVDO for $15 a month and their roaming agreements with Verizon it's hard to deny that there is value in that offer.

After 3 weeks, I was kinda hoping the OP would chime in and explain his interest in this. Is data service so prohibitively expensive where he lives that it's cheaper to move?

What is the 6 buck Tmobile plan? Are you limited in the sites you can view (just T-zones sites built for Tmobile)? Or could I visit anywhere on the web?

take a look at how sad Fido is in Canada

Rogers owns Fido, therefore Rogers has a complete monopoly over the entire GSM network in Canada. Fido use to at least offer $50 unlimited, then merged with Rogers, and Rogers removed it. 22$ per additional MB, they're crazy, someone should do something about this.

That's got nothing to do with Rogers having a monoply. Just check out the data prices on Bell & Telus. They're all high. Our market is just too small to allow the same kind of prices you see in the US. Look at it this way, Cingular had a churn rate that equals the total number of fido customers.
