Coincidenza?
A semi-informed observer might draw a connection between the rise in mobile broadband and the rise in "nationalist" movements. But we know better, right?

OECD Mobile Reports
The United States has the highest total for OECD and I think thats great for us and Japan has the highest when it come to data subscriptions and Korea has the highest when it comes to data and voice subscriptions. Because the mobile world has a lot to offer like the high speed gigabytes etc.

international data caps?
I'm curious how the countries with the fastest broadband handle data cap policies? Do they have generous data caps? Or almost no data caps at all? With speeds of 300Mbps, it would be pretty easy to eat up a 3GB/mo data cap plan. I've seen VZW ads here in the US that try to convince everyone that some large majority of people don't use more than 3GB of data per month, but if mobile broadband speeds were >100Mbps, I think that stat would be completely wrong.

Correlation doesn't mean causation... The rise of nationalism.. isn't due to broadband infrastructure at all.

Re: international data caps?
I don't think countries impose data caps. That's up to operators to do or not do.

Re: international data caps?
I wasn't trying to imply that countries impose data caps. (Although, arguably some communications regulations are more favorable to data caps than others...)

If I had worded my question better... I was wondering if ISPs in the countries with fast broadband had the same kind of data cap policies as the US does.

#alternatefacts I suppose if you want to believe a correlation, despite examples that run counter to the hypothesis... 

How does the broadband of the Philippines compare?

Re: international data caps?
Looks like Finland doesn't impose mobile data caps like the US wireless carriers do. Interesting.

I think "unlimited" might have a different definition across the pond....

Internet subscriptions in the Philippines are growing bigly, as is availability of broadband service, according to several organizations that track these statistics.
