Hong Kong offers Worlds Best Value-For-Money Broadband

Hong Kong has topped the list of regions with the cheapest broadband, with UK and US only taking the 24th and 30th positions.

According to new data released by market research company Point Topic, people in Hong Kong pay as little as $0.028 per MB for a fixed broadband connection.

Hong Kong was followed in the survey by Japan, Romania, Sweden, Latvia, China, Singapore, Russia, Germany and Finland.

Fiona Vanier, senior analyst at Point Topic, said in a statement: “Consumers in different countries are faced with very different broadband tariffs, dependent on geography, market and network maturity, local competition and various levels and sources of subsidy. Prices are stabilising in many markets around the world and overall in the last quarter there was an average increase globally.”

Meanwhile, UK has been ranked at number 24 with consumers having to pay $0.91 per MB. US got the 30th spot with a $1.32 per MB charge.
