T-mobile also has had the very best deal on low end data plans. My
wife pays 4.99$ (us) for unlimited internet access via her handset,
which we can also tether via Bluetooth to her macbook. Pretty killer


PS They have gone through periods of port blocking that make the
above great data service stop working. I have been able to
circumvent them by running a proxy on ports that remain open (ie
110/465 etc.)
