A new global survey that has analysed broadband services has found startling results.
In Ireland, the average monthly price totted up to €60.57, meaning that we are one of the highest priced countries in the developed world for broadband services. The report found that our neighbours over in the UK pay an average monthly price of €34.59.
Worldwide, Ireland was in the 69th position out of 196 countries, when analysing the most expensive broadband. Iran offers the cheapest broadband services, while Burkina Faso is the most expensive.
Six of the top ten countries where broadband is the cheapest were formally part of the USSR, including the Russian Federation itself.
The research was carried out by Cable.co.uk and BDRC Continental in 196 countries, examining over 3,351 packages between 18th August and 12th October.
A previous report compiled by Cable.co.uk looked at results from over 63m broadband tests worldwide. The report found that it took 4,414 seconds to download an HD movie in Ireland. For more information see here.
