Hungary scores 3.30 and drops one notch in ranking to 25th among the innovation-driven¹ economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2013 index.
With these scores, Hungary is just slightly ahead of only Poland. The country stands as a weak performer in terms of ICT across all six components of the Scorecard and has to cover a lot of ground to catch up with Western Europe. However, despite its low score, Hungary has made some significant strides in ICT adoption particularly in terms of broadband coverage and Hungary outperforms its “transition” economy peers as well as several more affluent states in this aspect.
