It’s data plan for tablet start at $14.99 per month for 250 MB, with an overage fee of $14.99 for another 250 MB. The overage fees is less for higher plans like 3GB data plan is available for $30 per month and 5GB data plan is available for $50 with an overage fees of $10 per extra another 1GB.

In India, surprisingly you get cheaper data rates like, you can get 1GB data by paying approx $3 to $4 and you can use 5GB data by paying in between of $10 to $12 per month. This is the reason, why an Indian visitor, when visits USA, find the tariff of data usage high in comparison to data usage charges in India.
