New Zealand moves up tech development index

ITU rankings

 

New Zealand has moved two places up the ITU global technology rankings to 16. That puts New Zealand one place ahead of the USA and in front of France, Germany and Canada.

The news comes just days after Kim Dotcom described New Zealand’s internet as ‘third world’.

The ITU table measures the relative uptake of information and communications technology comparing nations. The report Measuring the Information Society 2012, shows Korea is the world’s most advanced technology economy, followed by Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Finland. Australia is at 11.

The index ranks 155 countries according to their level of access, use and skills. It  compares 2010 and 2011 scores.

There’s a huge gap between the world’s richest economies – roughly the top 30 in the ITU list – and the developing world. At the bottom of the list are the so called least connected countries, all are in Africa.
