FRANCE enjoys on average the second cheapest broadband prices in Europe, according to research by Moneysupermarket.com.
Users of high-speed internet services in France pay an average price of £0.83 (€1.23) a month for each megabit per second (Mbps), which compares to a UK average of £5.60. Sweden had the cheapest services.
The measure of megabit per second is the speed at which data is downloaded from the internet, with users in French cities enjoying some of the fastest speeds in Europe.
However, speed and coverage in the countryside is still a sore point for some, with the roll-out of broadband often dependent upon the number who sign up for it as well as the distance properties are from telephone exchanges (via Lunch over IP).
