The International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the branch of the UN that is tasked with looking at computer and telecommunications use, has compiled its annual report looking at the world’s most connected countries as well as the fast spread of internet use across the world.
Denmark came first in the ITU’s ICT Development Index, an annual study of countries’ level of ICT access, use and skills. South Korea came second, with most of the rest made up of European and high-income countries.
The ITU praised other countries including the UAE, Fiji, Cape Verde and Thailand for improving their ranking most over the last year.
By the end of 2014, there will be 7 billion mobile phone subscriptions — as many subscriptions as people in the world.
