India has emerged as the country with the lowest data rate in the world, according to research by price comparison site Cable.co.uk. The achievement could be attributed to Reliance Jio, which has amassed more than 28 crore subscribers in a very short time. The research suggests that the average price of 1GB of data in India is ₹18 against a global average of ₹600.

“A country whose young population has a particularly high technological awareness, India offers a vibrant smartphone market, with strong adoption and many competitors. Data, therefore, is quite staggeringly cheap,” said the report.

India is the second largest smartphone market in the world after China with more than 430 million smartphone users.

For the research, data from 6,313 mobile data plans in 230 countries were gathered and analyzed by Cable.co.uk between October 23 and November 28, 2018. For the Indian market, researchers studied 57 plans and found out that the price of 1GB data in the country can go as low as ₹1.41 and as high as ₹98.83. Other countries to follow India in terms of low price on cellular data are Kyrgyzstan ($0.27), Kazakstan ($0.49), Ukraine ($0.51) and Rwanda ($0.56).

The study also added that 1GB of data in the U.K costs $6.66 while in the U.S, the price of 1GB data is $12.37. Mobile data packages are the most expensive in Zimbabwe where the price of 1GB of data is $75.20, the results showed.
