Many happy owners of iPhone when buying a smartphone just become to him a package of mobile Internet, as the phone has almost all the time connected to the World Wide Web. Accordingly, if you’ve used a conventional mobile phone, your communication costs increase substantially. As it turned out, iPhone users better notice the growth of their spending on mobile Internet, rather than the owners of smartphones on Android.

As reported by “Vedomosti”, citing a study of the cellular operator “MegaFon”, after the transition from a regular phone to the iOS-device Russian users, an increase of costs for mobile communications (monthly bills) by 45%. In second place are smartphones Windows Phone with the figure of 34% and closes the top three Android with 23 percent increase in spending.

The increase in the cost of mobile internet for those who chose the iPhone as the first smartphone was already the whole 208%. For owners of Windows Phone increase of 160%, Android – 130%. If we consider that the tariffs for mobile internet in the mobile operators and the same for the iPhone, and for Android-powered smartphones, we can conclude that the owners of Apple gadgets just more “gluttonous” .

These arguments confirms the company “VimpelCom” (“Beeline”), which notes the prevalence of monthly volume of traffic on the iPhone user over the traffic to the other smart phones. The more the Internet is used by subscribers, the higher his score is obtained for cellular communication. Hence, such a rapid increase in costs from the owners of iPhone.

Although the study of “Megafon” refers to the whole country, iKS-Consulting analyst told us that in the regions, the situation is quite different. According to them, the number of smartphones in the small towns are markedly lower than in Moscow and St. Petersburg, so the average monthly expense of many subscribers does not exceed 200 rubles.
