US, Canada, and Spain 'win' the battle for most expensive cellphone bills

It's not the kind of thing you'll probably want to brag about winning, of course, but, according to new research conducted by the OECD, people in the US, Canada and Spain come out on the top of the heap when it comes to high cellphone bills. The research was conducted by categorizing bills into three usage categories, with the mid-range being 780 minutes per year of voice calls, and 600 SMS per year. For that amount, people in the US of A pay about $635 (the highest rate), while runners-up Spain pay just over $500. The countries with the lowest phone bills include the Netherlands and Sweden, where that same usage runs about $130. Yes, that's a huge discrepancy, alright, meaning that in the Netherlands you'd pay around $11 a month with that level of usage, while in the US the same amount will run around $53 a month. Then again, they don't get to watch "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" in the Netherlands, do they?
