Who Uses The Internet Best? [INFOGRAPHIC]

swedish tongue   Who Uses The Internet Best? [INFOGRAPHIC] Sweden – the land of pretty blonde ladies, IKEA, saunas, cold weather….OK, before you all storm the comments section crying foul (including our very own Tina, who has lived in Sweden recently), I admit that I have just stereotyped a nation that is probably very lovely, and very nice to be around. And what makes them an even better nation (in my eyes anyway) is that Sweden has been declared the country that uses the Internet the best. Yay Sweden!

What does that mean? Well, as today’s infographic from OEDb.org shows, 61 countries were assessed Internet-wise, across 7 categories, which included communications infrastructure, web use, web content, and institutional infrastructure. And Sweden came out on top. Take that Norway and Finland! When it comes to Scandinavian Internet, Sweden are the top dogs! This is probably helped by the fact that 90% of all Swedes are online (compared to 75% of Americans).

Take a look at the infographic and then let us know in the comments what your thoughts are (apart from my stereotypes). Are you surprised that Sweden came out on top?  What is it about your country that makes it a good place to be, Internet-wise?

No wonder Swedes are so freaking good at eSports! On a more serious note, I’m surprised that Korea didn’t break the Top 10.

Great infographics. I’m surprised though Indonesia doesn’t make it into top ten most userbase. As quoted from my online friend, ‘they’re in every site I ever visited’. Well, we have crappy connections here though.

Where is Poland ? We’re good at eSports to, but internet service out country is bullish.

This is embarrassing for USA, especially when I read “Singapore has the fastest internet” and I think it’s because a lot of the US is southern, and they aren’t “trained” to know or care what a computer is.

LOL

I think the ‘fastest internet’ refers to technical infrastructure. It has nothing to do with the people using the internet or what service (speed) they afford.

Just wondering where India stands in Web Use and Impact measures
