Usage based data plans

The mobile operators intend to introduce usage based charges for their data plans, instead of unlimited usage.

StarHub said that it may 'review current (3G) pricing plansand consider introducing usage-based data pricing', in response to BT's queries. I do not mind paying usage based charges.
