    I don´t think it´s a good approach to establish a web index which ends up with statements like 'Sweden has the best internet'. I wished you have chosen a rather multi-faceted approach as can been seen at the OECD better life index: By choosing this approach, each person/stakeholder could find out 'his' or 'her' 'effectiveness' of the internet by boosting those criteria which are supposed to be important.Thank you for your attention, Andreas Blumauer
