Telephony costs here third highest in Europe

Ireland has the third highest communication costs in the EU, according to new Eurostat figures.

In 2019, communication prices across the European Union were almost five times as high in the most expensive EU member state than in the cheapest one.

Price levels

When price levels in countries are compared with the EU average price level index of 100, the results show that in 2019, communication prices were highest in Belgium (with a price level index of 176) and Greece (175), followed by Ireland (150) and Luxembourg (149).

In contrast, communication price levels in 2019 were lowest in Romania (with a price level index of 38) and Poland (51), followed by Lithuania (71), Bulgaria (76) and Latvia (77).

Communication prices include prices for telephone and telefax equipment, internet access provision, postal, wired telephone, wireless telephone, bundled telecommunication and other information transmission services.
