I didn't use it for many years but what I can say is that it's very expensive. I think the figures given by Flahusky are quite accurate.

What are the charges?
Mobile telephony rates are determined by the passenger's home mobile operator and are in line with ground-based, overseas roaming charges. Internet access charges will be in line with charges that business travellers incur at hotels and at other remote access locations. :rolleyes::rolleyes:
