Africa has one of the highest roaming fees in the world.

For instance, a Nigerian on roaming in Europe pays five times less than they would while on roaming within the Ecowas.

Northern Africa

The seven Northern African countries included in the research appear higher up the table than the majority of countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, although none make it into the top ten cheapest in the world.

The cheapest country in the region is Egypt, with an average of $1.49, followed by Morocco and Western Sahara (both $1.66). Those three all make it into the world’s top 30 and even Algeria, the most expensive country in Northern Africa, still makes it into the top (cheapest) half worldwide with an average of $5.15.

Sub-Saharan Africa

Contrary to what one might expect, ten out of the top 50 cheapest countries in the world for mobile data are in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is in stark contrast to the cost of broadband on the continent, which is almost universally very high or non-existent.

Rwanda and Sudan feature in the top ten, with 1GB of data costing just $0.56 and $0.68. Sub-Saharan Africa also lays claim to the most expensive nation in the world for mobile date: Zimbabwe, whose average cost for 1GB of mobile data is an eye-watering $75.20, while its most expensive gigabyte is an even more shocking $138.46.
