There's a one year promotional deal for AT&T 4G connectivity that includes only 250mb per month and costs $49. 250mb per month is only going to cover some e-mailing, browsing, downloading e-books and apps, and maybe a minimal amount of streaming. AT&T's prices for additional data are available on their web site.

If you have a wireless router at home, that is your wifi. If not, wireless routers are not very expensive.

From the Kindle Help pages:

Can I get more details about the data plan for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G LTE Wireless model?

AT&T is the carrier for 4G LTE service on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9'. If you're not currently an AT&T customer, you'll create a new account with AT&T on your Kindle Fire to use the service.

The $49.99 plan for the first 12 months of service includes 250MB a month of data, plus:

20GB of additional Cloud Drive storage
a free $10 Amazon Appstore promotional credit
The $49.99 package is only available in the U.S. International roaming plans are available directly from AT&T. After the first year, you can choose and purchase a data plan directly from AT&T.

If you want more than 250MB a month in the first year, you can choose to purchase 3GB or 5GB plans on your Kindle Fire in addition to the $49.99 plan.

Based on the latest pricing from AT&T, the price plans are $30 for 3GB and $50 for 5GB. For the most up-to-date information, view the pricing plans directly at AT&T's website.

In addition, we've been asked to pass this information along about the data plans:

*Overages - This is a prepaid plan. When a customer reaches their 250MB limit, they will receive a message letting them know they can either wait until the following month, or upgrade their plan to a 3GB or 5GB plan. There will be no overage charges.

*Restrictions - To prevent the data from being used in one sitting or accidentally, there are some restrictions to the data usage. They include:

-Downloads over 50MB from Appstore, Amazon MP3, Amazon Instant Video (AIV), Audible, or the Kindle Store require a Wi-Fi connection to complete.
-Transitioning from Wi-Fi to cellular (e.g. customer leaves home Wi-Fi network) when downloading an item over 50MB will result in the download stopping and asking the customer to connect to Wi-Fi to complete it.
-Transitioning from Wi-Fi to cellular when streaming AIV content will result in the stream stopping and asking the customer to connect to Wi-Fi to continue watching.

*Customers may see a restriction to their AIV streaming, this restriction will be removed with a software update once the device is connected via wireless and has at least a 40% charge.

*If a Wi-Fi network is recognized by your device and you're in range, it will connect to it automatically.

*When you're connected to the 4G network, the status bar will display the AT&T logo, the network type, and the network signal strength bars. If you're connected to Wi-Fi, the mobile network type will n
