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.

High-speed fibre overtakes DSL as OECD countries add 21 million fixed broadband connections in pandemic year
 
High-speed fibre Internet subscriptions surpassed copper-wire DSL connections across OECD countries for the first time in 2020 as the need to move work and home life activities online during the COVID-19 pandemic led to a record 21.15 million new fixed broadband connections (including fibre, DSL, cable and others) in the year to end-December 2020. Read more...

Les abonnements à l'internet par fibre optique ont dépassé les abonnements DSL dans l'ensemble des pays de l'OCDE pour la première fois

Les abonnements à l'internet par fibre optique ont dépassé les abonnements DSL dans l'ensemble des pays de l'OCDE pour la première fois en 2020. La nécessité de transférer les activités de la vie professionnelle et de la vie privée en ligne pendant la pandémie de COVID-19 a entraîné un nombre record de 21,15 millions de nouveaux abonnements au haut débit fixe (y compris la fibre optique, le DSL, le câble et autres) au cours de l'année qui s'est terminée fin décembre 2020. En savoir plus...

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.
