The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has produced a wealth of data on broadband penetration. Much of it comes as no great surprise, the continuing dominance of South East Asia when it comes to fiber connections — Japan and Korea have over 60% of fixed broadband lines based on fiber technology.
But there were some things that stick out (the graph is immediately above). Not surprisingly it tends to be smaller countries that have the highest fiber penetration — Estonia, the Slovak Republic, Iceland, Slovenia and Denmark are all in the top 10. But then so are Norway and Sweden (although 84.5% of Sweden’s and 77.5% of Norway’s populations live in urban areas according to the World Bank. By contrast, Finland with under 5% fiber penetration, has only 63% in urban areas), so it isn’t just related to landmass.
What is striking is the graph reproduced right at the top, showing the correlation between broadband penetration — this is all broadband, not just fiber — and per capita GDP. The OECD has calculated the simple correlation to be 0.64. Without the outlier of Luxembourg the correlation goes up to 0.77. Correlation runs from -1 through 0 to 1 and a correlation greater than ±0.8 is generally described as strong, whereas a correlation less than ±0.5 is generally described as weak.
The connection between the two is often proposed but remains a topic of strong debate. The International Telecommunications Union noted in its April 2012 report [PDF]
