The cost of cellphone data has shown a remarkable decline over the last five years, heading in the opposite direction to the volume of data used in Greece, according to official figures by the National Telecommunications and Post Commission (EETT).

Service providers’ revenues per gigabyte dropped from 8 euros in 2015 to €1.3/GB in 2020, when traffic soared to 388 billion megabytes due to the pandemic and providers’ revenues climbed to €508 million.

The previous year’s traffic was at just 231 billion MB and revenues at €434 million.

Overall the average revenue per GB dropped some 90% from 2014, while usage soared 1,000%.
