You sure of that? 1 cent per kilobyte doesn't sound like a lot, but it equates to $10.24 per MB (that's 1024KB at 1 cent per KB). Download 4 MB, and you've just spent the equivalent of 1 month of a blackberry unlimited plan. I dunno about you, but I go through data pretty quickly, and can rack up quite a few MB of downloaded data in a single session.
My e-mails are small in size of course, but web browsing or tethering can really eat up data.
