tefficient noted that most mobile service providers are no longer trying to make money from SMS usage or voice talk minutes, but are now making revenue by offering data and plan allowances for a flat fee.

In Canada, in 2019, mobile services made over 13€ (roughly CAD$19) per gigabyte of data.

India, China, Finland and Poland were among the world's countries with the lowest revenue per gigabyte of mobile user data consumed, the report stated.
