New Delhi: A study released on Monday found that Denmark is the world's top country for "cellphone and Internet use." The report was researched by the International Telecommunications Union, which analyzes information and communication technologies (ICTs).

Denmark toppled South Korea to become the "most-connected country." The third spot was held by Sweden, followed by Iceland and Britain, emphasising European dominance in the connectivity stakes, according to the report. The US ranked 14th.

Of Asian countries, Hong Kong was the highest-listed, in ninth place. Last place, meanwhile, went to the Central African Republic.

The survey considers internet and mobile phone access and use as well as "the population's competence with the technology."

The report states that internet use in developing countries is up 8.7 percent in 2014 and is up 3.3 percent in wealthier nations. But of the 4.3 billion people who aren't online, 90 percent are in developing countries.
