Fact fest for planners with a predilection for statistical summaries.

To add to the recent post about the new APAC internet study, anyone seriously interested in how the Big Switch will play out around Asia might want to invest a couple of hours in ploughing through the ITU / UNCTAD (International Telecommunication Union / United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) World Information Society Report 2007

It isn’t a relaxing read for the beach (tough luck, Western bloggers, the good weather’s on its way to Asia now). But the world-at-a-glance statistics and maps offer authoritative back-up for anyone working on multi-market digital strategies: “If you don’t like my numbers, go argue with the United Nations”.


While we’re on statistics, it’s self-evident that the wealthiest nations have the highest take-up of broadband. So what sense does it make to charge the highest subscription charges in markets where the public can least afford it? posted this piece a couple of months ago.

    Excellent piece to encourage thinking. I will locate that report, but suspect there is a little more to digital opportunities than just the conduit through which the real estate travels. Content is king and a slew of other factors inhibit opportunities much more any investments in infrastructure. But, I didn’t say that (yet) because I have not actually read the report 😉
