The App Gap Index

Mobile broadband in healthcare, financial services and education

As the quality and speed of wireless connectivity improve and mobile devices become more sophisticated and diverse, traditional services in almost every industry are being disrupted.

The App Gap Index measures a country's capacity to deliver three key services, healthcare, financial services and education, via mobile broadband. The report compares markets by analysing data on mobile penetration with levels of service delivery in the three sectors. On the basis of the data, each country is assigned an overall market opportunity score. Twenty countries are included in the index, 10 from developed markets and 10 from emerging markets.
