ITU Digital Access Index

ITUpublishes the world’s first global ICT ranking. An interesting comment by Michael Minges of the Market, Economics and Finance Unit at ITU: “”Until now, limited infrastructure has often been regarded as the main barrier to bridging the Digital Divide. Our research, however, suggests that affordability and education are equally important factors.” India falls in the medium access category with an index of 0.32.

The one factor I want us to fix is that of affordability with thin clients, server-centric computing, open-source software and remote server management.
