Here is the article I was referencing.. Unless this has changed, then 
TekkSavvy and Execulink are getting away with Highway robbering and

$22.50 Maximum surcharge for up to 300GB!!!! (less than half the cost of 
TekkSavvy prepaid "Insurance".. and 75C per GB over 300, which is still 
ridiculously expensive, but TekKSavvy is bumping that to 90c.... 
completely insane.  They need to be dumped soonest.
