Austria made its first appearance on the Connectivity Scorecard in 2011, and now in 2013 scores 5.01 to rank 15th amongst the Innovation-driven economies.
The country is a middle ranking performer with a few scores swaying to the two extreme ends of the index. The country performs best on various measures of consumer and business mobile adoption and usage. There is however scope for significant improvement in its consumer and business broadband penetration. Overall, Austria’s performance is perhaps just a bit weaker than one might expect on the basis of the generally strong correlation of Connectivity Scorecard scores with the country’s GDP per capita.
