Nigeria Has ‘Most Expensive’ Internet Globally, Surfshark Press Study by Islie: 7:16pm On Aug 26, 2020
The cost of internet use is so expensive in Nigeria that the country ranks at the very top in a survey of 85 countries of the world.

An analysis by Surfshark Press, a United States-based solution provider released Monday, said Nigeria ranks below Columbia and Honduras in terms of internet affordability.

“Nigeria has the least affordable internet globally. It ranks below Columbia and Honduras in terms of internet affordability,” it said.

In its methodology, the company said the overall affordability is measured by combining the affordability of the cheapest mobile and broadband plans available in a country.

On the overall analysis of digital quality of life index 2020, Nigeria ranked 81st.

The analysis was based on five pillars: Internet affordability, internet quality, electronic infrastructure, electronic government, and electronic security.

The examined countries have a combined population of 6.3 billion people.

In Africa, the report said while Nigeria surpassed Algeria, it lagged behind South Africa, Kenya, Morocco, and Tunisia.

Algeria ranked 84th while South Africa took the 59th position. Kenya is in the 77th place, Morocco at 70th and Tunisia at 64th.


According to the report, Nigeria ranked 70th in terms of e-security, 53rd in terms of cybersecurity, 81st in electronic infrastructure and 82nd in electronic government.

It has data protection laws available in the country, the report said.

The report revealed that Nigeria has better internet quality than Peru, Algeria, Philippines, and Sri Lanka.

Overall, Denmark came first, followed by Sweden, Canada, France, Norway, Netherlands, and the UK.

The U.S. ranks 22nd; China, 38th and Russia, 42nd.

Internet is most affordable in Israel, Canada and Azerbaijan, the report found.

“Top 10 countries with the highest e-security levels are the European Union member states. Globally, they lead in implementing effective cybersecurity policies and ensuring personal data protection,” the report says.

The report said countries in Central America and Africa lag behind in terms of ICT adoption and internet usage.

“The government’s readiness to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the artificial intelligence technology and the assortment of its services provided online strongly correlate with the country’s e-security, except for Eastern European, South Asian, and African countries,” it added.

Anything goes in Nigeria.

Our leaders don't care if we are been swindled by these companies. Infact most of them teach these companies how to rip us off.once the Ghana must go reach them,the rest is history.

Take dstv as a case study.why in God's name is dstv not pay as you watch. In other countries it's applicable.some don't watch their dstv for up to 10 days in a month,but pay for the full package.

These are fundamental issues to be addressed. But we are always on line insulting each other because of politicians who don't care about us.

When I travelled to India,precisely chania.The hotel we lodged in,our subscription got finished.The guy just asked me to wait,he went and brought in another smart card from another room then slot it into our decoder and we where reconnected.

My brother and I asked him how manage he was able to do that.He told us that each room has its own different subscription. That since people don't always come around they decided to save cost through that means.In his own words "no watch no cost".

I pray we wake up from tribal hate and do away with mental slavery.only then will our country move forward.

Hmmmmmmm, I believe Nigeria will improve after this Covid palava ends as most govt activities will be digital.
NCC should also remove floor cap pricing for mobile communication, it's saturated already, no single global communication company can bully the existing ones out.
There is no reason why sms shouldn't come down to ₦1 if not for the cap, ditto for data subscription.

As far as this generation is concern,as far as we remain in Nigeria, data price will never go down to N100 / Gb with 1month validity period...
Maybe till the youth take over power...
Airtel and Mtn will give u small data for big money but fast network which will drain ur data fast, glo gives much data but poor network and u end up not being able to even use the data...
