The third International Broadband Data Report presents comparative data on international broadband capability. The report presents, for the first time,a close look at the broadband prices for both fixed and mobile service plans in 38 countries around the world, including detailed price information for mobile broadband plans, broken down by technology (e.g., smartphones, stick modems, and tablets).  The dataset includes information on bundle pricing and advertised monthly recurring charges and nonrecurring charges such as connection and modem fees.  The International Bureau is making this dataset openly available so that interested parties can perform further research and analysis.  The report also presents our review of data on average actual download speeds reported by a sample of consumers from the same 38 countries.
