South Korea has the fastest Net connectivity in the world, says UN agency

South Korea has the best internet connection in the world according to a report put out by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a United Nations specialized agency for information and communication technologies – ICTs.

South Korea lead the ICT Development Index table, ahead of countries like the UK, US & Japan.

The IDI ratings are done on speed of internet (bandwidth, measured in bits per second), volume of fixed Internet subscriptions per 100 people, & percentage of households with a computer, giving the country a score out of 10.

South Korea’s rating came in at 8.93, taking it above Denmark for the 1st time.

The ‘Measuring the Information Society Report 2015’ is quite voluminous. One of the key findings of this year’s MIS Report
was that the least developed countries (LDCs) were making progress with their connectivity initiatives. However, in 2015, only 6.7% of households in LDCs had Internet access compared with 46% of households worldwide & more than 80% of households in developed countries. The report also reveals that, globally, 46% cent of men & 41% cent of women were Internet users.
