Israel on Digital Quality of Life Index from Surfshark Digital.

Israel ranks fourth in the world for digital quality of life for 2021. This according to the latest Digital Quality of Life Index from Surfshark Digital. Israel ranked second for all of Asia.

The ranking should come as little surprise to just about everyone. After all, Israel is called Startup Nation for a reason. And its communications ministry has been at the forefront of promoting local technologies and infrastructure to increase Internet access and expand its quality.

Israel’s ranking in the following fields:
Broadband Internet Affordability: 1st
Mobile Speed Growth: 1st
Mobile Affordability: 3rd
Mobile Speed: 67th
Online Services Index: 52nd
The Number Of Internet Users: 50th (This figure is skewed because more than 10% of Israel’s population does not use the Internet due to religious reasons.)

Digital Quality of Life Index from Surfshark Digital

The 2021 edition of the annual Digital Quality of Life (DQL) Index is a third, improved iteration of Surfshark’s DQL studies of 2019 and 2020. This year, the DQL Index is more complex and includes 14 factors that directly influence the digital quality of life in any given country. Unlike the 2019 study, the DQL Index editions of 2020 and 2021 are (with a few exceptions) comparable this year.

The DQL 2021 index analyzes 110 countries (in contrast to 85 in 2020) around the world in terms of five core pillars: internet affordability, internet quality, e-infrastructure, e-security, and e-government. These pillars consist of 14 (two more than last year) indicators that are interrelated and work together to measure the overall digital quality of life.

This year’s study includes 25 (29%) more countries than DQL 2020, most of which are African countries.
