Aircard data usage question

Hi,

This may be a terribly stupid question, but I just can't find anything searching on the Google.

I have purchased a laptop so I can start trading while at work, but the network is locked down thre so I can't just glom on to the network wirelessly; and there is no Starbucks or anything else nearby to glom on to either. So I am looking at the aircards available by AT&T, Verizon, etc.

But it occurred to me that I have no clue how much data usage it would take (I have TD Ameritrade and will use the thinkorswim platform) if I have TOS open for 6-8 hrs of the day and it is constantly streaming quotes and data updates.

Can anyone give me an idea of how much data usage per month it would be and if anyone has a similar setup, which vendor and data package did you go with?

Thanks.
