The Cost of Our Cells

August 11, 2009

CBC reports that Canada has the highest cellphone rates in the developed world. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development report also listed Spain and the US as the highest in the world, while Sweden, the Netherlands, and Finland were among the lowest. According to the report, “Canadians falling into this usage category shelled out an average of $500 US a year for their cellphone service, compared with $635 for Americans and $508 for Spaniards. Dutch users had the cheapest rates, with an annual expenditure of only $131 for the sample plan.”
