You’ve probably been sensing it for years, but it’s now official: Canada is the most expensive country in the world to have a mobile data plan.
What you see all the way on the right over there is a country where Bell, Rogers and the like rake in $60 per month per mobile subscriber. That’s compared to less than $21 per month per subscriber for our neighbours to the south, who use twice as much data.
The Finnish are having a hell of a time on their phones, using over 7GB of data for the price of a coffee per month.
It’s a painful chart for Canadians, made worse only by scanning the Reddit comments on the matter.
“Where I’m at right now I’m getting 36GB (without monthly expiration) for €20,” writes one, while another boasts about getting 15GB for three euros in Latvia.
