The countries within the purview of the Pacific ICT Regulatory Resource Center are mostly micro states, 14 in all. Only the two largest states, Fiji and Papua New Guinea, have been included in the ITU’s IDI Index for 2010.
The picture, for them, is bad.
Fiji and PNG have both dropped four places, Fiji to 94th rank and PNG to 143rd. Both have increased their IDI scores, Fiji from 2.82 to 3.16 and PNG from 1.24 to 1.38, but as stated in the previous post one must run fast, even to maintain one’s place.
