According to a new report, mobile broadband penetration in OECD countries has reached 99.3 percent, meaning there is nearly one high-speed mobile broadband subscription for every inhabitant. As the smartphone became mainstream and mobile internet started to become more common, pricing in mobile markets shifted from telephony to data usage. That trend is particularly evident when it comes to 4G services that are designed for IP-based traffic, rather than being optimized for voice.
The rapid expansion of 4G, coupled with providers in many countries introducing unlimited data packages, has seen levels of data usage rise considerably in recent years. The following infographic shows mobile data usage per mobile broadband subscription in selected OECD countries last year, with Finland first by a wide margin.

In 2016, Finnish smartphone users consumed an average of 10.95GB of mobile data per month, considerably more than Austria's 6.28GB. In Finland, users can select the speed for all services without having their usage capped. For example Elisa offers tiered speeds for 4G at 50 Mbps, 100 Mbps and 300Mbps including unlimited data usage. Sweden and South Korea recorded mobile data usage of 4.38 and 3.83GB per month respectively while U.S. smartphone owners used 2.67GB. While some U.S. operators like Sprint and T-Mobile do offer unlimited usage plans and charge by speed, others are still rooted back in the 3G-era.

Cool.. What a margin between the first and second. The most used data plan in Nigeria, I believe, is MTN.
Check out the list of their subscription codes:

That's an average for the whole country. Means someone like you in Finland would be using 200Gb to 1 Terabyte.

There are still many a people who don't use up to 1Gb a month

I think the only reason most African countries are not included in the list is because they think we are archaic, like we don't know things.

In a month, I use not less than 15gb and I know there are many people like me out there.

The result of their research is biased. I doubt they included any African countries in their research.
keep mum and stop your useless chest beating ....you are an archaic learner ...do.you know that many people in the aforementioned countries especially the youths download games and bluray movies of over 15gb in a day ?

Why should I keep mum when this is a public forum and everyone is entitled to his/her opinion. Can't you voice out your opinion without vomiting insults from your mouth? Can't you voice out your opinion without being harsh?

People like you are the reason why others with one or two opinions don't voice out.

Back to your quote, we also have youths in Nigeria or Africa that download movies and games in size over 15gb in a day too.

Stop acting as though youths over there are better than you and don't tell someone to keep mum next time. That sounds bullyish.

Africans with their backward mentality.

Exactly my point. Their research is just selective. And one dude is up there ranting as though his life depends on it

To get data in most of these countries is not as expensive as we get it here in Naija...We are still being duped by mtn and co when it comes to data purchase...and mind you we still transmit at a very slow speed compared to others, a reason why we can't be on that list yet....

the data price in some african countries here is more expensive than ours. eg south africa, zambia, namibia were protesting a hike in data prices some months ago.

I see a lot of internet illiterates in this thread. Those of you ranting that the survey is skewed need to get a break.
The statistics written in the OP are the INDIVIDUAL AVERAGES for the countries mentioned.
