4. Singapore

The island city-state of Singapore ranks highly almost entirely due to its great mobile data and broadband speeds, with almost everyone in the city having access to world class internet.

Singapore has also been working to simplify and modernise its sometimes cumbersome regulation and bureaucracy, moving much of it online.

There is room for improvement however, with the city struggling to manage pollution. And while Singapore’s public transport system has come under fire recently for train breakdowns, it is still much better than others around the world.
