New Zealand broadband prices in global mid-range
Posted on 20-Jan-2014 08:32 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.



Residential broadband prices in New Zealand sit around the middle of the latest Point Topic country scorecard.

The average subscription in New Zealand is US$76 using a purchasing power parity comparison.   PPP is a measure used by economists to make meaningful price comparisons between products and services in different countries.

On this basis consumer broadband is more affordable in New Zealand than in the United States or Canada. It’s roughly comparable with Australia but considerably more expensive than the United Kingdom or most of Western Europe.

Russia has the world’s cheapest residential broadband while third world countries tend to have much more expensive broadband.
