Cost Of Mobile Data By Country
While nearly everyone is concerned with the cost of mobile data, it’s of particular interest for users of hotspots and internet on the go. If you are a heavy data user and traveler, the cost of data per GB is a substantial consideration and factor.
Recently UK based Cable.co published a number of handy graphics and webpages calculating the average cost of a GB of data in many countries throughout the world. While Go Connect’s product is currently expected to only be for sale in the US, with other countries following behind, the information is still highly useful when considering products that offer worldwide capabilities.
