Friday 1 May 2015 | 08:59 CET | News
The cost of a mobile plan including a top smartphone showed a general decline in most countries in Western Europe in the first quarter of 2015, according to the latest research from Telecompaper. The survey of prices advertised in Q1 2015 in 16 countries showed prices trending lower in most countries compared to six months previously, both for plans including a high-end handset and for SIM-only plans. In total, more than 3,200 plans were on offer in Q1, about 18 percent less than during the previous survey in Q3 2014. The research found that mobile plans are coming with ever-larger bundles.
