Policy makers must examine a range of indicators which reflect the status of individual broadband markets.

This page provides access to a range of broadband-related statistics gathered by the OECD.

The OECD has identified the five main categories below which are important for assessing broadband markets.

Coverage and geography (national broadband maps)

National broadband maps of OECD countries

The coverage of broadband service is mapped by access technologies such as DSL, fibre, cable and wireless in addition to speed tiers (e.g. 1 Mbit/s to 1.5 Mbit/s, second lowest speed tier of less than 10-20 Mbit/s, mid-speed tier of less than 50 Mbit/s, etc.). Information on service providers such as names or links to them for each of the smallest geographical units is also provided. It is therefore possible to consult which technologies are used for broadband access and how much speed is provided in a location along with names of service providers if a detailed interactive map has been established in the country.
