But you're only paying $4.17 per month!

If you MUST download full HD movies, try to find a WiFi signal.

Otherwise 250 MB is plenty for emails and basic web surfing.

Is there actually any mention of who's 4G LTE coverage this thing is going to work on? That makes a pretty big difference depending on where you live, and it would also be interesting to know if it is backwards compatible to older cell data tech like 3g when 4g is not available, which is still that case in many areas.

If I remember correctly Amazon's Whispernet uses Sprint's network in the U.S. I would assume the data for this is through the same network.

According to
Unlike some 4G devices, Kindle Fire HD includes support for 10 bands, so even when you're in a place with no 4G LTE network you'll fall back to the fastest available network and won't lose coverage.

Another factor in support of Sprint being the provider is that Sprint just opened it's network to MVNO's (announced within the past week I think). Essentially, Amazon's an MVNO, at this point, too.
