Here is why:
On AT&T you pay $69.99/month for an unlimited voice plan plus $25.00/month for a 2GB data plan.
In Austria you can get a plan with 2010 minutes, 1000 SMS and 2GB per month for 25€ ($34) on Orange.
On Verizon you pay $50 for 1GB of mobile data with a prepaid plan. In Austria you get 1GB for as low as 4€ ($5.50).
Why is there such a huge difference between USA and Europe?"
