Now in its fourth year, this annual report draws on innovative and authoritative benchmarking tools developed by ITU to monitor information-society developments worldwide as well as to provide valuable information for use in formulating evidence based policies and in effective peer learning.

The report presents the ICT Development Index (IDI), which ranks countries’ performance with regard to ICT infrastructure and uptake, and the ICT Price Basket (IPB), a unique metric that tracks and compares the cost and affordability of ICT services.

This edition also features new data series and analyses concerning revenue and investment in the ICT sector, and proposes a new methodology using non-conventional data, to measure the world’s telecommunication capacity.
