Singapore scores 6.40 and moves up one place to rank 10th among the Innovation-driven¹ economies on the Connectivity Scorecard 2011 index.
Singapore benefits this year from the inclusion of new consumer infrastructure indicators which track coverage as well as adoption. Given its urban nature, Singapore has the highest available coverage levels of both wired and wireless broadband networks. In the business sector, Singapore performs rather modestly on some of the business infrastructure indicators, but scores very well on several measures of business usage. The country’s government is leading efforts to build a knowledge economy, particularly in the biotech area. There is enormous potential for ICT to assist in that process.
