India has emerged as the country that provides mobile data at the lowest rate in the world, showed the research by price comparison site Cable.co.uk.
Indians pay on an average Rs 18 for one gigabyte (GB) of data against a global average of Rs 600, the research suggests.
“A country whose young population has a particularly high technological awareness, India offers a vibrant smartphone market, with strong adoption and many competitors. Data, therefore, is quite staggeringly cheap,” said the report.
With over 430 million smartphone users, India is the second largest smartphone market in the world after China.
