Thailand ranks 54th in GCI 2019.
As an early adopter of ICT, Thailand continues to perform outstandingly in the broadband assessment. Its FTTH and 4G investment have increased steadily over the years. This year, Thailand received maximum score in smartphone penetration and mobile broadband subscriptions. There was also improvement in the e-government user experience, and Internet use as a whole has spread.
But despite its competitive broadband infrastructure, Thailand is lagging in the other three tech enablers, especially data usage. The next stage would be building up to further develop more advanced technologies such as cloud, AI, and IoT.
