Nigeria has been ranked sixth in the latest study by the Research ICT Africa, on some 10 African countries with cheapest 1 Gigabytes (GB) data.

The gigabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. The prefix giga means 109 in the International System of Units (SI), thus, one gigabyte is 1000000000 bytes, whereas the unit symbol for the gigabyte is GB.

The 10 countries reviewed by the study includes Egypt, Mozambique, Tunisia, Ghana, Tanzania, Nigeria, Guinea, Uganda, Rwanda and Madagascar.

Researcher, Communications & Evaluation Advisor to Research ICT Africa, Chenai Chair confirmed this to ITRealms saying that Egypt offers broadband worth of 1GB for 1.74 United States Dollar, followed by Mozambique at 2.12, Tunisia at 2.21, Ghana at 2.45; Tanzania – 2.99, Nigeria 3.2, Guinea – 3.29, Uganda – 3.43, Rwanda – 3.72 and Madagascar selling 1GB of broadband at 4.66.

Singling out Rwanda for examination, Chenai said Research ICT Africa compared the best performer Egypt (USD 3.13), prices with Rwanda were USD1.07 is more expensive.

Stressing though that the cost of 1GB of data continued to decline over time, Rwanda was overtaken by Tanzania which offered the best price in Q2 2016.

“Rwanda was later overtaken by Nigeria and Tunisia, ending up in 9th position by Q4 2016 when the price of 1GB was USD3.72; nearly two US dollars higher than the 1st-ranked country, Egypt (USD1.74),” she said.

Chenai pointed out that as with many predominantly prepaid mobile markets, bundled and dynamically priced products are better value for money than 1GB of data, the international standard for data measurement.
