Australia’s ranking slips in digital world

(Australian Associated Press)

The rollout of the NBN was one of many issues contested during the election campaign, but it would appear neither side is offering a system to beat the world.

Australia’s ranking when it comes to `networked readiness’ has slipped from 16th to 18th, according to the World Economic Forum’s global information technology report for 2016.

Australian Industry Group chief Innes Willox said despite the efforts from all sides of politics to improve our digital readiness, Australia clearly still has some way to go to regain a place inside the world’s top ten.
