How much does 2 GB of mobile data cost around the world? Folks from Android Fanatic took a look and presented their results in this infographic. Not surprisingly, Japan, Sweden and South Korea — three of the most advanced wireless societies — have the lowest bandwidth prices, and they all are offering what is being dubbed 4G wireless broadband.

  1. South Korean mobile providers are doing some hardcore marketing for LTE these days. KT has WiBro (which has been around for years), but LG Telecom and SK Telecom are offering LTE services at 75Mbps.

    LG Telecom LTE: 30,000won for 5GB / 50,000won for 10GB http://mobile.uplus.co.kr/jsp/lte/lte_02_1.jsp

    SK Telecom LTE: 35,000won for 5gm / 49,000won for 9GM http://www.tworld.co.kr/

    It would have been nice to include Canada in the study, where the price is the highest in the world.

    1. No amigo, go past the Rio Grande for a surprise!

      1. Here in Brazil the price is absurd and we don`t have 4g and our 3g is a real 2.5g….seriously!

  3. Hi Om, how about some Latin America Numbers?

    The Swedish mobile carrier (in the “fastest mobile operators” arrows near the bottom) is misspelled. It’s supposed to be “Telia Sonera”, not “TELESONARO”.

  5. Ireland in the middle…not so bad…but the worst Internet connection on the world, I swear…so bad here…connection 2/10, customer service 0/10, cost 2/10.

  6. South africa 10gig for $26 hsdpa speeds from 8ta

  7. this is not an accurate description of cost. Not everyone earns in dollars outside the US.Comparison should be based on the earning capacity.

  8. This is stupid and factually wrong to boot. The cheapest unlimited 3G data postpaid in Finland is 2.99 per month. Every operator offers base unlimited 3G for max 5 euros per month. Even unlimited prepay data is cheaper than that.

  9. Do we need any more proof that corporate greed is responsible for Verizon being at the top of the list?

    That said, if I use Sprint’s unlimited 4G as an example and use 30GB/month, that translates to just $3 for 2GB of traffic.

    Not sure why they left Sprint out, but any unlimited 4G plan skews those results by far.
