Yeah, it is very expensive :/

Coverage wise, I don't know how much it is in places like Africa. I have personal experience in India with a smartphone, no internet, and cell connection. Stefan also had this issue on the bus from Chicago (?) to MHacks (Ann Arbor), which was a 9 hour trip without 4g. A lot of more rural areas of America have bad data coverage too. I like to go camping, and I see this pattern a lot.
