It is cheap.
I love my 3G. The only issue I have is I didn't use it up and still had a lot of data left when my data renewed. I can stream Netflix with no problem and it's nice and clear, though I haven't tried HD yet.
I wish the plans were a little cheaper, but yeah - I find the 3G connectivity indispensable when on the go.
