This paper presents an assessment of broadband penetration among OECD member countries and the Middle East including Iran, to ascertain if broadband usage can be used as a predictor of ICT exports. Using inferential statistics, the linear relationship between the following pairs of variables were evaluated: monthly charge and volume of DSL subscription; volume of DSL subscription and speed of connection; volume of DSL subscription and the volume of ICT exports in OECD member-countries; volume of broadband subscription and volume of ICT exports to the Middle East, including Iran.
