This post puts the perspective on NZ Data Prices, I am shocked to see we are actually cheaper than the US. So for all of you complaining about mobile data, this will calm your nerves. Then again, I would much rather be in those country’s that pay $51c/US for data >.<

those are only the minimum price you could pay for a GB, no matter the package - meaning if a country only offered a plan of, say, 500GB for $100USD (with 30 day expiry) they would be the cheapest by far on a per GB basis @ $0.20/GB
It would still be an expensive plan though.

The assumption of 30GB for unlimited seems designed to skew the ranking. Is that a realistic assumption for unlimited users? I think a more likely usage pattern would be 5GB, certainly less than 10GB. (many unlimited plans have a soft cap of 5GB)

a better measure would be how much you pay in each country for a given amount of usage.
i.e. what is the ranking if you want to use 500MB, 1GB, 2Gb, 5Gb, 10Gb and so on.
