image of OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2011

This tenth edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard builds on the OECD’s 50 years of indicator development to present major world trends in knowledge and innovation. It analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa) and includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest.

Broadband speed and prices

Broadband prices have declined continuously over the past decade across the OECD area, while connection speeds have increased. Most OECD countries have at least one operator actively offering fibre-based, high-speed broadband connections, although these may be limited to certain geographical areas. Fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-tothe- building (FTTB) also enable symmetrical upload and download speeds, which permit new functionalities and better user experience for a range of online activities, such as sharing pictures, video conferencing or uploading content onto social-networking websites.
