ITU's World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Database is the main source of global, and internationally comparable, telecommunication/ICT statistics. It includes time series for more than 140 indicators and around 200 economies. The data are collected directly from telecommunication regulatory agencies and/or ministries and national statistical offices by means of an annual questionnaire, and subsequently verified, harmonized and complemented by ITU. The statistics are used to track and benchmark the information society, to monitor the digital divide and to identify market potential and investment opportunities. Statistics available include fixed-telephone subscriptions, mobile-cellular telephone subscriptions, and percentage of individuals using the internet.
