I would say no. When I bought my 8 Plus and used my 6S Plus backup for a restore, it was roughly 35-40GB, including the transfer of my Camera Roll but excluding the music. Most providers (not mine) would charge out the (insert word here) for that kind of operation. Plus a restore over cellular might take forever.


It's still recommended to do this over WiFi. The most it'll take at the minimum is an hour, depending on network traffic.
