This dimension includes four subdimensions: Fixed broadband take-up, Fixed broadband coverage, Mobile broadband and Broadband price index. It is in this dimension where Catalonia obtains its best position: it ranks third among all EU-27 states, with a value of 64.59%, just below Denmark (74.04%) and the Netherlands (68.44%). Thus, Catalonia has high levels of connectivity in relation to the set of EU states.
In the DESI 2021, within the dimension of Connectivity two new indicators have been added: “At least 1 Gbps fixed broadband take-up” (2a3) and “5G Coverage” (2c3). The other indicators remain the same as in DESI 2020. For more detailed information, see the methodological note.
