The 2015 Global Connectivity Index

(CC) Garfield Anderssen/FlickrHuawei has released its 2015 Global Connectivity Index (GCI) for countries, benchmarking 50 economies in terms of connectivity, ICT usage, and digital transformation, providing an indicator of which countries are best poised for development and growth, and an ICT planning reference for policymakers looking to embrace the digital economy.

The United States ranks the highest among surveyed countries, on the strength of robust supply and demand of ICT services, and an advanced state of adoption, with other mature economies such as Sweden, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom rounding out the top five.
