Luxembourg has 4th best connectivity in the EU

In addition to its top-level connectivity, Luxembourg also ranks 6th for its human capital in the 2021 edition of the Digital Economy and Society Index.

Published by the European Commission, the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) summarises indicators on Europe’s digital performance and tracks the progress of EU countries. Luxembourg ranks 8th in the 2021 edition of the index, and has constantly increased its overall score ever since the first study published in 2021. Denmark, Finland and Sweden come out on top in this year’s ranking.

Outstanding connectivity

As previous years, Luxembourg performs very well in the field of connectivity and ranks 4th in the EU. The country is almost fully covered by fast fixed broadband networks and has very good coverage of very high-capacity networks (VHCHs). Thanks to the wide availability of VHCNs, Luxembourg performs very well in the take-up of fixed broadband services and 53% of households have opted for speeds of 100 Mbps and above. It scores 61% on the 5G readiness indicator, while 4G coverage stood at 99.8%.

Strong human capital

In the Human capital dimension, Luxembourg ranks 6th. It ranks above the EU average on the three digital-literacy indicators. Luxembourg continues to report an increase in the share of ICT specialists as a percentage of total employment and is well above the EU average (6.3% and 4.3% respectively). 20% of specialists are female, slightly above the EU average of 19%.
