What Countries Offer the Cheapest Mobile Internet?

Mobile internet has become quite commonplace especially in developed countries, and developing nations are also creating the infrastructure necessary for it since it can really boost growth. In spite of the fact that this is the case, it can be challenging to provide mobile internet at a cheap enough rate. Plenty of advanced countries struggle to bring the price of mobile internet down, although a few are doing a pretty good job at making it affordable.

A price comparison site in the UK recently revealed that Israel has the cheapest mobile internet in the world with all things having been considered and taken into account. It costs just four cents to purchase a gigabyte of data in the Middle Eastern nation. This is especially impressive when you consider that Italy, which comes in second place, offers mobile internet at three times the price of Israel!

Italy still does really well, though, with a gigabyte of internet costing around twelve cents on average in that nation. India comes in third with seventeen cents per gigabyte of mobile internet, followed by France with 23 cents. China rounds off the top five list with an average mobile internet cost of 43 cents per gigabyte.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that some of the richest nations in the world are really lagging behind in this race. A gigabyte of mobile internet in South Korea can cost as much as $12.55, which may make it harder for people to access it than might have been the case otherwise.

Switzerland, the US, Japan and Germany are also poor performers in this regard. The costs in Switzerland are $7.37 per gigabyte, and in the US it hovers at around $5.62. Meanwhile, in Japan consumers are looking at a per gigabyte cost of around $3.85, whereas in Germany things aren’t much better with an average per gigabyte price of $2.67. Germany has the most expensive mobile internet in Europe, while South Korea tops the list in Asia as well as the rest of the world.
