Data project: Internet in Romania

I will look at data about internet penetration in Romania, and the paradox of being one of the countries with the fastest Internet connection, and one of the lowest rates of penetration in Europe (second to last in the EU28, for sure).

I’m trying to tie that with what I can find on e-governance and the relationship citizens have with authorities through digital means. As a new generation of civic-minded activists is looking to online for offline change, I thought it’d be interesting to survey the infrastructure landscape.

I’ll use Eurostat data for the most part, and I’ll return with questions as they arise, which I’m sure they will.
