UK among most expensive countries for mobile data
The UK ranks 136th in the world for the average cost of 1GB of mobile data, according to new statistics.
Brits are paying out an average of $6.66 (£5.05) for every gigabyte (GB) of mobile broadband data they consume, compared with just $0.26 in India, and $1.16 in Finland, the cheapest Western European country, according to a global study.
The data contained in the study was gathered from an analysis of multiple mobile SIM-only packages (that include SMS and voice minutes) on the market around the world. It reveals massive global disparities in the cost of mobile broadband data and shows that some of the world’s poorest people are among those being charged the most.
