A new study shows how much the costs for mobile communications differ internationally – the place that Germany occupies in this ranking is surprising at first.

Study compares mobile phone prices: The impression that customers in Germany have to pay exorbitant prices for mobile phones is obviously misleading, as a study by the digital association Bitkom shows. This is reported by the “FAZ”. According to this, Germany is in the middle of the table when it comes to the costs of mobile phone contracts.

Lower costs in Southern Europe: Cell phone customers in Spain and Italy have to pay less than in this country – however, cell phone calls are more expensive in the USA, Finland and Switzerland. The comparison looked at 80 providers in twelve countries.
