Denmark wins crown of 'most networked economy'
Usually the UK is viewed as being backward in terms of broadband usage and use of the internet, but it is ahead of Germany and France in the Networked Readiness Index produced by the World Economic Forum.
The index looks at a wide range of factors from 127 countries to produce the final ranking, the data appears to be mainly from 2006 and covers areas such as High-speed monthly broadband subscription cost, laws relating to ICT, E-government readiness index, capacity for innovation and many more areas.
Germany scored 5.19 in 16th place, France 5.11 in 21st place, and Ireland was 23rd with 5.02. Italy is a fair way down the table at 41st place with a score of 4.21.
