We were researching New Zealand data plans from local ISPs recently and found a useful metric that nobody seems to be comparing: $/GB. Essentially this tells you how many dollars you’re spending for each GB of monthly data allowance you receive from your ISP. Obviously, higher allowance plans are generally cheaper per GB but it was still surprising the premium charged for low monthly GB plans and the differences in price between ISPs for the same data cap.
Note: all of the plans compared are business plans. We may conduct a similar analysis of residential plans if there is sufficient interest.
For all you data nerds, the full spreadsheet with source data is accessible here (we’re aware that the VDSL chart isn’t working, Google Drive is just having a bit of a tanty).
