  1. Very nice info Prof.
    Surprisingly enough, those leading western country aren’t listed US Uk Europe and the rest, Bangladesh? I think China is the only global economy on that list, we thrive elsewhere but are leading in subscription ranking, amazing…
    Upon it all TELCOS are complaining? I side NCC for imposing so much on them

  2. we don’t get quality data so we just keep on resubscribing. I’ve bought 2gb of data twice already this month, if jot for dent it mkifht have been 4 times already

  3. The countries that suppose stay at the front shared FREE WIFI to the people around, i guess these top 5 country you will hardly see free or open wifi without a password around, so people are forced to subscribe if they need to stay online.
