2002.09.18
International Telecommunication Union has published its first Mobile/Internet Index covering over 200 countries

As part of a report looking at convergence prospects for mobile and Internet technologies and the take-up of 3G mobile services, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has published its first Mobile/Internet Index. This measures how each of more than 200 economies are performing in terms of mobile and Internet technologies and how likely they are to be able to take advantages of new developments in this field. Denmark and Hong Kong top the list, closely followed by Sweden, Switzerland and the USA. ITU notes that the combination of mobile and Internet technologies, such as the short message service (SMS) and i-mode, is already transforming the way people interact and the way business is done. Some 24 billion SMS messages were sent worldwide in the first quarter of 2002.

 

The Index is a composite of 26 separate indicators clustered into factors of infrastructure, usage and market structure. The three clusters are standardised, averaged and weighted with 50% weight on infrastructure, 25% on usage and 25% on market structure.
