I have to say, It really depends on your intent. I live in the UK and get a pretty good 3G signal everywhere I go. I'm on a 500MB plan data wise, but I don't really find it to be an issue.

If you think about it from a logical point of view, its quite easy to see why its causing so many problems. Aside from breaking server-side plugins every update (which is hardly unique to minecraft), there haven't been any major issues.
