European SIM-only prices trend lower, with more data in Q1

Wednesday 24 May 2017 | 08:25 CET | News
The cost of a mobile SIM-only plan showed a general decline in most countries in Western Europe in Q1 2017, according to the latest research by Telecompaper. The annual comparison of mobile prices across 16 countries shows a general trend of operators including more and more data in postpaid plans, as well as many already offering a roaming allowance ahead of the change in EU rules in June. In the survey of nearly 1,600 plans available on the market, the Telecompaper EU Benchmark report found that Denmark remains the cheapest place for a mobile plan and Greece the most expensive.
