I just signed up for Danish mobile service that includes two 4G lines that each get eight hours of talk, 2GB of data, unlimited texts, family talk/text, unlimited music, data sharing, and hotspots for 300 kroner a month. That’s $54, including taxes.

My AT&T bill back in the States for lesser service? $165 a month. Take out the iPhone subsidy and it was still $145 a month or so.

Here’s hoping T-Mobile shakes things up some more in the States.
