19/09/14 - 13:15

Huawei have recently released some fascinating information as part of their Global Connectivity Index, showing the top 10 most "network-connected" countries in the world. The good news is that the UK has made it in at number three! Just behind the USA and Germany [no surprises there].


This appears at first glance to be a fairly comprehensive study where countries are awarded index score points based on 16 different factors such as broadband speed, connectivity, smartphone connections.


There are some real shocks in here:

1. Germany

2. USA

3. UK

4. Chile

5. Japan

6. South Korea

7. France

8. New Zealand

9. Canada

10. Mexico


To emphasise the importance of this study, Huawei also found that for every point increased on their index, the GDP per capita of a country increases by 1.4% to 1.9%.
