Countries with zero-rating have more expensive wireless broadband than countries without it

According to a publication which sought to analyse a recent report titled ‘The Net Neutrality Situation in the EU’, the conclusion has been drawn that zero-rating business practices by wireless carriers have led to an increase in the cost of wireless data compared to countries without zero-rating practices.

The report published by the non-profit compared 30 EU member countries on the enforcement of net neutrality. It was found that EU countries without zero-rating practices enjoyed a double digit drop in the price of wireless data after a year. The countries with zero-rating practises from their wireless carriers on the other hand saw data prices increase.
