Portugal scores 4.80 and retains its ranking of 21st amongst the Innovation-driven¹ economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2011 index.
Portugal’s performance in this year’s Connectivity Scorecard is characterised by reasonable scores on a few metrics and poor performances on the majority of others. To some extent, this performance mirrors that of other Eastern and Southern European nations. The country’s best scores come from the consumer infrastructure component where it has achieved a high level of broadband and 3G coverage. However, the country’s consumer and business usage scores remain fairly poor, particularly with respect to internet usage.
