Broadband Delays Bad for Economy - WEF

Government's delays in improving broadband Internet access have a negative impact on South Africa's economy, according to the WEF rankings

The rankings by the World Economic Forum (WEF) show that the government's delays in improving broadband Internet access have a negative impact on South Africa's economy.

In 2013, South Africa occupied 70th place in the WEF rankings of 144 countries, according to its ability to benefit from the digital era.

Rankings are determined on the basis of among other things; a country's regulatory and business environment, the use of information and communication technology (ICT) and the subsequent impact on the economy and society.
