"If you think you're paying a lot for broadband in the US, here's a shot of perspective: Internet service in developing countries is comparatively more expensive. In the aftermath of The World Bank's releasing a report on the challenges facing China's information and communications technology industry, we decided to take a look at how much Chinese citizens paid for broadband compared to other countries. We decided to take some of the broadband prices contained in the World Bank's report and combine them with income data from the International Monetary Fund to get a clearer picture of how expensive broadband can be from country to country, both in absolute and relative terms."
