I'm so glad about this. I was worried they'd make the fees something ridiculous over here.

Things are like that with pretty much everything, don't know why.

Yeah, not to get into it to much but basically a lot of things are nearly double the price in Australia then it is in the US.

But $6.50 is barely nothing, thats less then a dollar per month. I'm quite happy with those prices :)

I have a lot of family in New Zealand and they often complain about the price differences when it comes to internet services and shipping and whatnot, but then I remind them that they live on an island with a comparitively small population in relation to the U.S. It never changes their standpoint, but at least I can try to get my point across. :D I feel that pain almost daily.

£4.99 = $8.04 (US), $8.54 (Aus), €5.94 or 805 ¥. Don't understand why it is so much more expensive for the UK just for data. I know, I know, £4.99 still doesn't seem much, but I don't get why we're charged that much more.

I've found this to be the case with a lot of games and consoles. You can usually switch the dollar sign for a pound sign and have a pretty accurate prediction of the UK price.

Pretty annoyed it's £5 for British, only $5 for Americans. But it's still ok I guess.

US is closer to Japan, where the servers are (I guess), so perhaps this has something to do with the price.

The price depends on where you are right? It happens that one of my 3DS is set to be in Japan, but I happen to be in Europe, but will it detect my true location?

Does anyone else think taxes might play in too? I'm not sure how so with an online service as Pokémon Bank, but at least with consoles and games, it would make sense that the price is higher in a country with higher taxes, I guess. I'm just so glad it's ridiculously cheap anyway :D
