Asia - Nepal has the least affordable Internet access in Asia for 2019, with the cost of 1 GB of data at US$5, which is about 6.28% of the average monthly income (GNI per capita) of US$80.83. The hypothetical price of $1.62 (2% of average monthly income) buys only 320 MB worth of Internet usage in a month or 10MB per day.
Data sources: We consider the cost of broadband access across countries based on the data published by Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI). This data primarily cover countries with low to middle gross national incomes (GNI). We base the 2018 GNI on the data published by the World Bank and look at the affordability of Internet access as a percentage of the cost of broadband over average monthly income per capita.
