For example, for me in Hong Kong here are the figures:

Hong Kong

ThreeHK 3G Rechargeable SIM Card


US$26 for the card (US$0 for the card, US$26 pre-paid balance)

US$2.5/month for 50MB data and unlimited SMS within threehk network

US$0.05/MB for the first 50MB, then US$0.25/MB onwards

Probably not long-term viable, but there will be alternatives

Best deal in the world, I think

Regards, Mark.
