RELEASE OF ICT STATICTICS REPORT: MEASURING THE INFORMATION SOCIETY 2011  

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is releasing the ITU's flagship ICT statistics report on "Measuring the Information Society 2011", which will take place on Thursday 15 September 2011 at 1330hrs at the 9th floor of the Ministry of ICT, the Government Complex, Chaengwattana Road.

The 2011 edition of Measuring the Information Society features the latest ITU ICT Development Index (IDI), which captures the level of advancement of ICTs in 152 countries worldwide and compares progress made between 2008 and 2010. The report also features the ICT Price Basket (IPB), which combines fixed-telephone, mobile-cellular and fixed-broadband tariffs into one measure and compares 2008 and 2010 data across countries.

This year’s report will include a special focus on broadband, looking at speed, quality of service and international bandwidth available in different countries worldwide and how this is impacting broadband take-up in the developed and developing worlds. A new analysis of the digital divide among Internet users will examine how factors like age, gender, educational level, and urban/rural location affect people’s ability to get online.
