Top 10 information technology countries in the world 2017

Top 10 most advanced IT countries 2017

The International Telecommunication Union based in Geneva, Switzerland recently released the annual global Information and Communication Technology (ICT) data and the annual Index country rankings in ICT development. The former includes the ICT Development Index (IDI), which collects data about mobile subscriptions, international internet bandwidth, computer ownership, internet usage, internet subscriptions and literacy in many countries around the world. All data gathered by the IDI is used by operators, researchers, development agencies and governments to determine the state of global ICT development.


The Importance of Economy

The IDI has set a global average value of 5.03 in determining the annual Index country rankings. In terms of ICT development, Asian countries that made it to the top 20 ICT list included South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. European countries have exceeded the global average, placing them on the top half of the rankings. Denmark leads with 8.88, while Iceland boasts 8.86 points. This trend is true among the Nordic countries. The United Kingdom is also a top contender for ICT development, having shown the most improvement from 2010 to 2015. In the Middle East, the oil-rich states have achieved significant IDI values. The connection between income and ICT development is one factor that figured in improvement and a reason why African countries have lower IDI numbers.
