8 General Overview & Key Findings Overview The Telecommunications Regulatory Autheirty (TRA) has undertaken the most intensive survey of ICT in the history of the UAE. The survey focuses primarily on ICT access (i.e. internet connections) and ICT use (i.e. utilization of internet). The survey was conducted over 6 months and covered 7 sectors: Households, Private Sector, Education Establishments, Higher Education Establishments, Government, ICT Business Sector, and Public Internet Access Center (PIAC) Establishments (e.g., internet cafes and public libraries). The survey targeted both household level and organizational level. Face-to-face interviews were conducted with call backs to ensure the authenticity of the responses. A total of 1,350 households, 1,510 private sector establishments, 194 educational establishments, 44 higher educational establishments, 154 public sector Establishments, 403 ICT sector establishments, and 144 Public Internet Access Centers participated in this study. One of the benefits of this survey is that it will allow TRA to measure the status of the UAE in terms of the 48 ICT core indicators that have been developed and agreed to by international organizations including the ITU, the OECD, UNCTAD, UNESCO Institute for Statistics, the World Bank, and a range of UN Regional Commissions. Of the 48 core indicators, 33 rely on survey data and this survey has collected information on all 33 of these indicators. TRA has been collecting information for the remaining core indicators in a separate exercise, and the only missing core indicators are macroeconomic items not currently available from UAE sources. To ensure consistency with the way the ITU defines the various indicators, the following parameters were applied throughout this study: The household surveys were limited to people aged between 15 and 74 years; and The private sector and ICT business surveys were limited to those with 10 or more employees. Key findings from the survey are as follows. ICT in Households Internet connection penetration in households has reached 66% overall, while penetration rates among nationals is 83%. 87% of household internet connections are broadband, with this rate increasing to 95% among national households. 74% of households have at least one computer, and 72% of the UAE population aged between 15 and 74 used the Internet in the last 12 months, although not necessarily from the home. 65% of respondents have noticed reductions in prices of telecommunication services in the past year or two, and 71% have noticed the availability of more choices, offers or options in the telecommunication service operators services. ICT in the Private Sector The private sector in the UAE makes intensive use of ICT in thier business operetions with 97% of private sector establishments haveing computer, 81% of employees use a computer at work. 82% of establishments have a website. 26% of businesses have made online sales, while 29% have made online purchases. ICT in Educational Establishments The vast majority of school students, 84%, use the Internet at their schools. On average, 99% of educational establishments have a computer laboratory and each school has, on average, 38 laboratory computers. 93% of schools have an internet connection, with DSL being the most popular. 95% of teacher have undertaken some form of professional ICT qualification. 8 SUMMARY OF 2008 UAE ICT SURVEY RESULTS

9 ICT in Higher Educational Establishments Every higher educational establishment surveyed has some form of Internet connection, with DSL being the most popular type of connection. 98% have a computer laboratory. The average number of computers in laboratories in each establishment is % of higher education students use the Internet at the establishment, and 98% of the teachers have been trained to use ICT for instructional purposes. ICT in the Government Sector The Government has devoted considerable effort into enhancing levels of e-government in the UAE, and this appears to be reflected in the results of the survey. 97% of government sector establishments have internet access and 89% have a website. 86% offer some form of online services to the public. 41% of government employees work in ICT related jobs, of which 67% are occupied by UAE nationals. Overall, 63% of employees have ICT skills. ICT in the ICT Business Sector The survey also examined ICT in the ICT-specific business sector. As would be expected, levels of ICT access and use in this sector are higher than that of the overall private sector. 95% of the employees in ICT business establishments use a computer at work versus 81% in the overall private sector. 92% of ICT businesses have a website, a significantly higher figure than the overall private sector figure of 82%. While in the overall private sector, dialup connections comprise 19% of total internet connections, in the ICT business sector they make up only 9% of total connections. ICT in Public Internet Access Centers (PIACs) PIACs are proving to be a popular way of access the Internet. On average, PIACs have 57 customers per day with each visit lasting around 1.7 hours.

51 Chapter 6 Indicators Report for the ICT Business Sector 403 ICT related businesses were interviewed. For each business, the responsible administrator was interviewed as well as four randomly chosen employees. The survey used the ICT sector definition as developed by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). OECD defines the ICT sector as businesses with the following International Standard Industry Classification (ISIC Rev 3.1) codes: 6420 Telecommunications 7123 Renting of office machinery and equipment (including computers) 72 Computer and related activities 3000 Manufacture of office, accounting and computing machinery 3130 Manufacture of insulated wire and cable 3210 Manufacture of electronic valves and tubes and other electronic components 3220 Manufacture of television and radio transmitters and apparatus for line telephony and line telegraphy 3230 Manufacture of television and radio receivers, sound or video recording or reproducing apparatus, and associated goods 3312 Manufacture of instruments and appliances for measuring, checking, testing, navigating and other purposes, except industrial process control equipment 3313 Manufacture of industrial process control equipment 5151 Wholesale of computers, computer peripheral equipment & software 5152 Wholesale of electronic and telecommunications parts & equipment

52 CHAPTER 6: INDICATORS REPORT FOR THE ICT BUSINESS SECTOR ICT business sector information is reported for the sector as a whole and also disaggregated by company size.

Small ICT business is defined as those with 10 to 49 employees (73% of all ICT businesses), medium ICT business 50 to 249 employees (21% of all ICT businesses), large ICT business 250 or more employees (6% of all ICT businesses). These classifications were chosen to be consistent with the standards established by the international organizations responsible for defining ICT Indicators. ICT businesses with fewer than 10 employees were not surveyed in accordance with those classification standards. Proportion of ICT businesses with computers 99% of the ICT business establishments have at least one computer. For large ICT businesses 100% had at least one computer, for medium ICT businesses 99% and for small ICT business 99%.

61 Chapter 8 International Benchmarks

62 CHAPTER 8: INTERNATIONAL BENCHMARKS Benchmarking The ICT survey data, combined with other data TRA has collected from the industry in the UAE, has been benchmarked against a range of countries and used as a basis for analyzing the relative position of the UAE in the ICT sector. In order to select the countries for inclusion in the benchmarking exercise, TRA chose a number of regions across the world for analysis. The regions selected included the Arab states, Europe, North America, and Asia. Within each of those regions, an assessment was undertaken of the availability of indicator data across the countries within the region. This was necessary as many countries do not,at this point in time,collect data relating to all of the ICT core indicators. Countries selected were those with publicly available data sets that can be described as comprehensive compared to other countries within each region in relation to the indicators selected for benchmarking. Note, however, that some of the countries included in the exercise do not have data available for every indicator, and have accordingly been omitted from the analysis of those specific benchmarks. Results The information available suggests that: The UAE is the top performing country in ICT among the Arab states. While the UAE compares relatively favorably on an international scale, there is still some progress needed to be equivalent to the leading ICT countries such as those in Western Europe. Nevertheless, the significant rate of growth experienced by the UAE in ICT development in recent years is very encouraging and suggests that the UAE may be well on the way to achieving ICT levels comparable with those achieved by the currently top ranking countries. The charts below illustrate the UAE s position relative to other Arab states and a range of countries in Europe, North America, and Asia across 10 commonly available ICT indicators. The UAE ranks the first among the benchmarked Arab states in all 10 of these indicators, and first across all of the benchmarked countries in mobile subscribers per 100 inhabitants, the proportion of households with mobile telephony, and is one of several countries with ubiquitous mobile coverage. The UAE also performs well in the percentage of homes with Internet, and the percentage of homes with a personal computer.
