Show all indicators of Access


Broadband is fundamental for people to access the Internet and the free flow of information. This indicator measures the uptake of broadband connectivity by households. It reflects the share of households that have access to fixed broadband (DSL, cable, fibre, satellite, terrestrial fixed wireless or other fixed wired technologies) or mobile broadband services of 256 Kbps advertised speed or more. It provides a measure of connectivity in urban and rural areas as well as by income level.
