Well my HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile came with completely non-crippled Gingerbread & Sense 3.0 (which is bearable). It comes with USB Tethering, Reverse USB Tethering (getting on PC's network), Wifi Hotspot, etc... No charges, and I get around 5Mbit downloads. Great phone in general!
Actually it says 250G*bit*, so 250/8 = ~31.25GB/month.
I'll stick with Cablevision's Optimum Ultra. An extra $50 a month on top of their Boost plan (30down/5up) for 101Gbit down (where do you think that 105 came from?;) ) / 15 Gbit up. Plus free webspace, domain name, ability to open port 80 and 25 for web hosting, and best of all, no capping that I know of.
I like their Dogfish Head's 9000 year old beer recipe a lot more, and not just because it's older. You should be able to find some here and there at the moment.. it is "in season". Don't get me wrong, I just had a bottle of Theobroma, it is very good too!

This fork includes enchantments to many of the built-in apps, Ad-hoc network connectivity, OpenVPN support, Bluetooth HID, Incognito browsing, extensive control over audio and UI elements, and more found in the extensive CHANGELOG. The CyanogenMod team uses an instance of Google's gerrit tool for code review and patch submission, helping make this former backport of Android 1.6 to T-Mobile's G1 into thriving development for the G1/MyTouch/MyTouch 1.2, Droid, Nexus One, HTC Aria, HTC Desire, HTC Evo 4G (minus 4G and HDMI output), Droid Incredible, and MyTouch Slide. HTC Hero (including Droid Eris) are coming soon for 6.0, with Samsung Galaxy S devices expected to be supported in 6.1."

It's the opposite in most other countries. My friend grew up in Brazil and his family was fairly well off. They owned a few cars, all automatic. One day they looked outside to find their car missing. They found it a couple hundred feet down the road with it stuck in first gear. Most people there have never even heard of an automatic, and they ditched it because they didn't know how to drive it.
