Mobile internet has become ubiquitous in today’s time. However, mobile data rates vary widely. Countries with the most expensive mobile data often have poor broadband infrastructure and internet consumption is very small. People are often buying data packages of just tens of megabytes at a time, making a gigabyte a relatively large and therefore expensive amount of data to buy. Additionally, some countries have good infrastructure and competitive mobile markets, and while their prices aren’t among the cheapest in the world they wouldn’t necessarily be considered expensive by their consumers.
