There is no doubting the fact that India has lowest call rates in the world – Yes, we are far below global average and lower than the lowest when it comes to Voice calls – But is it same in case of Mobile Internet charges?
No it is not!
Although, Mobile Internet charges are lower in India than in many countries, there are few countries that not only offer much faster speeds, but also charge only fraction of what Indian Telecom companies charge its users.
Android Tablet Fanatic has put together a nifty little infographic which offers insights on what Mobile Internet Costs around the World.
USA remains one of the most expensive countries when it comes to data usage on Mobile. Roughly, an American user is charged in the region of USD 42 for 2 gig of mobile data usage.
Comparatively, Indian Telecom Operators charge close to USD 24 for 2 gb of data usage (Though, I think it is lower and rates will fall further from here). Japan is the cheapest of all countries and the cost is merely 3-4 USD for same amount of mobile data!
