U.S. No Longer Global Leader in Internet Use
A study by the Economist Intelligence Unit says the United States now ranks sixth in E-readiness:
“The U.S. ranks sixth on this year’s E-readiness list of 50 developed countries. E-readiness measures a nation’s E-business milieu to determine how open it is to Internet-based opportunities.” (the 2004 e-readiness rankings report, 30 pages, pdf)
In last year’s e-readiness rankings report, available here, the U.S. tied for third place.
