 Therefore the United Nations in cooperation with many international organizations developed “core ICT indicators to measure both ICT infrastructure and usage in different sectors. Upon this, Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT) had launched a new promising national project about ICT indicators in September 2005 "Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Indicators Project".

 The project will provide the necessary, accurate and meaningful data about ICT sector in Egypt. This project has the broadest scope among the Arab countries, as it is measures ICT usage in different segments of the society: Households, Businesses, Government, Education, IT Clubs and internet cafés.
