The OECD Communications Outlook provides an extensive range of indicators for different types of communications networks and compares performance indicators such as revenue, investment, employment and prices for service throughout the OECD area. These indicators are essential for industry and for regulators who use benchmarking to evaluate policy performance.

This book is based on data from the OECD Telecommunications Database 2005, which provides time series of telecommunications and economic indicators such as network dimension, revenues, investment and employment for OECD countries from 1980 to 2003. Readers of the OECD Communications Outlook 2005 e-book will find a URL that provides online access to the OECD Telecommunications Database 2005. Graphics and tables in all editions include StatLinks, URLs linking to spreadsheets containing the underlying data.
