In comparison, Georgia pays more than 10 USD for 1 megabyte of Internet package, whereas for the same amount Armenia pays around 2.5 USD, Azerbaijan around 5.7 USD and Russia 3 USD. There is a monopoly of major internet providers: Caucasus Online and Silknet. However, the service is not always satisfactory and there are some customer complaints.
