OECD Communications Outlook 2013

Published every two years, the OECD Communications Outlook provides an extensive range of indicators for the development of different communications networks and compares performance indicators such as  revenue, investment, employment and prices for service throughout the OECD area. These indicators are essential for industry and regulators who use benchmarking to evaluate policy performance.

This edition is based on data from the OECD Telecommunications Database 2013, which provides time series of telecommunications and economic indicaors such as network dimension, revenues, investment and employment for OECD countries from 1980 to 2011. The data provided in this report map the second decade of competition for many OECD countries that fully opened their markets to competition in 1998.

Hide / Show Abstract

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are an increasing part of everyday life. Communication and computing devices along with the Internet and broadband are now widely available in most OECD countries. Types of devices and services evolve continuously, so penetration rates can vary when benchmarked against leaders. ICT expenditures comprised the most dynamic component of household expenditure in recent years, but growth began to slow after 2005.
