AT&T normalizes that pesky "month" unit of time
AT&T 3G Data Plans for Apple iPad defines “month” as 30 days, effectively raising the rates from what was advertised. i.e. their $30/month plan implies $360/year, but AT&T is really charging you $30 for 30 days, so a year will cost you $365 ($366 in 2012). Those sneaky bastards! That’s it, I’m returning my iPad tomorrow.
