The price of gasoline is the most common example of price distortions in Venezuela, but mobile plans are not less fascinating:
As always in economics, something has to give. Trying to find a SIM is not easy, since all networks are over-capacity, they try to restrict new users.
Also, notice how limited the data-plans are — in both cases its the highest allowance offered. Some people have told me the have two SIMs with separate contracts to get through the month.
I have not seen 4G yet since I arrived.↩
