How much are people around the world paying per megabit for broadband access? The Telegraph (UK) says Brits are paying 17 times more than Swedes and 7 times more than the French. How much are people around the world paying per megabit for broadband access? The Telegraph (UK) says Brits are paying ¬¨¬£5.60 a month for each megabit per second (Mbps), which is 17 times more than Swedes and 7 times more than the French.
Dirk van der Woude put together a chart of the average monthly price per Mbps paid by people in Asia and Europe (see below) relying on data from the Telegraph and Bruno Giussani’s blog post on the same subject.
Bruno says: Clearly there is not a single price for broadband in a country, so what each of you individually pay is not necessarily in contradiction with an average, a median, or any other criteria they may have adopted. What I found interesting in the ranking, and that’s why I posted it and added the data about Asia (which were
gathered by an individual blogger) is not the exact value of the MBPS in each country: it’s the amazing range. Switzerland pays 6 times the Swedish price, and 12 times the Korean price. So what matters here really is not the exact monetary value, but the spread, which doesn’t seem to have a specific correlation with affluence or other country wealth measures — and therefore is likely correlated to tech and market openness/competitiveness differences.
