It should be noted that since ITU relies primarily on official economy data, availability of data for the different indicators and years varies. Notes explaining data exceptions are also included. The data are collected from an annual questionnaire sent to official economy contacts, usually the regulatory authority or the ministry in charge of telecommunication and ICT. Additional data are obtained from reports provided by telecommunication ministries, regulators and operators and from ITU staff reports.
As per Council 2017, the current December 2017 version of the database is made available free of charge to Member States via this direct link accessible with Member State TIES access only, currently not sector member TIES access. Otherwise, a reduced rate is provided when purchasing any two consecutive editions of the USB key. For more information on either of these, please contact ITU Sales.
Online access to the ISO copy of each DVD is available for separate purchase or to subscribers of the DVD, upon request.
Available for free downloads or hard-copy purchase as of mid-May 2017.
