Asia-Pacific has the Lowest Pricing for Mobile Data
As more mobile network service providers continue the ongoing decommissioning of 2G networks and start on the 3G networks, their subscribers are still considering the impact of new 4G monthly service fees.
Compared to 3G data pricing, 4G is around 20 percent higher than legacy 3G for the equivalent data plan. But there are already signs 4G tariffs will succumb to the downward pull of competition sooner rather than later, according to the latest market study by ABI Research.
“In South Korea, SK Telecom has cut its 4G pricing to remain competitive. Their LTE 62 Plan for smartphones used to be priced $55.04 for 3 GB of data, but the monthly download quota has now been increased to 5 GB.”
