Technology allows people to connect with anyone, anywhere – but as you can imagine, not every country and culture uses it in the same way, at the same frequency or to the same magnitude. How does each country compare in its use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT)? And is there a direct connection between technology use and that country’s social and economic prosperity?
Finding the answer to that question is the goal of the annual Connectivity Scorecard study. This year’s index will identify which countries are the most “usefully connected,” and will continue to reveal how and why ICT affects every single one of us. Fifty countries have been studied, compared and ranked, providing valuable information for the telecommunications industry.So that everyone can learn about the results simultaneously, we are holding an event at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., this Thursday, May 5 – including a discussion with Professor Leonard Waverman, the leader of the study. And we will share all of the happenings via videocast with anyone wishing to participate. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the newest findings of the Connectivity Scorecard index.
