In India, bandwidth remains extremely expensive, so it is advisable to avoid visiting a news website especially foreign news websites. Many of these websites have more than 40-50 images and videos, so the daily bandwidth quota of approximately 50 MB will be consumed very quickly. In contrast most other websites selling text link ads or government websites do not take up much bandwidth, and can be visited without costing much in terms of data transfer.
In UK, USA the bandwidth cost remains low, and broadband connections are cheap, so internet users from those countries do not face any data transfer problems visiting the news website, only indian internet users have to carefully monitor bandwidth usage before taking a decision.
For checking the news, television, newspapers are a better option in India
