OECD Broadband Portal

 

Data last updated: 9 January 2014


NEW ! A webpage with links to national broadband maps in OECD countries. See the map


The OECD broadband portal provides access to a range of broadband-related statistics gathered by the OECD. Policy makers must examine a range of indicators which reflect the status of individual broadband markets in the OECD. The OECD has indentified five main categories which are important for assessing broadband markets.
