When it comes to the world of cheap data plans,I really never believed that Nigeria will be among the top 10 but I was proven wrong because Nigeria is in number 4. Take a very close look at the graph from Statista.
Countries with the cheapest Data
To my greatest surprise Nigeria ranks 4th in the list of selected countries with cheap data plans
A gigabyte of data would cost an Italian smartphones users $1.73, the very same amount of data would cost $2.22 in Nigeria,$2.99 in France,$6.66 in the United kingdom and $6.96 in Germany. Not to talk of North America where it cost an average of $12.02 in Canada and $12.38 in the United States.
I really think we should give our network providers some accolades for giving us the cheapest data plans in the world.
On a second thought,they really don’t deserve a standing ovation especially when you check the fact that we have one of the slowest 4G speeds in the world
Nigeria’s top 4G speed is placed between 9.5Mbps and 16.2mbps,while Algeria’s slowest speed of 2.6Mbps is the worst in the world.
However take a very close look at the plot twist, The country with the slowest 4G speed-Algeria’s top download speed of 16.4Mbps still beat the fastest speeds in Thailand (11.7mbps),India (14.6mbps and Nigeria (16.2Mbps).
However I think they only deserve the accolades for constantly sucking our data.Nevertheless I feel ISP’s in Nigeria can definitely do better than this.
