Colombia ranks 55th in GCI 2019.
Colombia's performance in 2019 is in line with the global average. Smartphone penetration and mobile broadband subscriptions made a 1-point improvement, hitting a new peak in 2019. Colombia needs to continue developing its broadband infrastructure to establish a more solid foundation for the next stage of ICT development. As the GCI indicators show, Colombia is still in the preliminary stages of investment in AI and IoT and their applications. To make real use of these technologies, the nation needs to invest more in R&D and training a skilled workforce.
Colombia has initiatives to promote access to ICT, effective use, and mass procurement. Each of these policies and programs will improve the quality of life of each Colombian and help to support sustainable growth.
