UN telecommunications agency confirms Nordic countries lead the world in access to digital information and communication technology

A new report from the United Nations telecommunications agency confirms that the Nordic countries continue to lead the world in access to digital information and communication technology, with South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore chasing hard.

 

In a report covering 178 economies, the Geneva-based body said that Denmark and Sweden head the field, closely followed by Iceland, South Korea and Norway, while Iceland and Sweden had the world's highest rates of Internet connection. The US shares 10th place with Canada, while New Zealand, Italy, France and Slovenia tie for 21st place and Israel is 25th.

 

At the other end of the digital scale, sub-Saharan countries like Burkina Faso and Niger have almost zero access to this technology, mobile phones included.
