Abstract:  This study evaluated status of telecommunication sectors in Central Asia comparing 6 countries with 62 countries in 6 regions (Africa, Central Asia, East Asia, Middle East, Europe, and South America) using DEA and ANOVA. Data using 7 IT indicators were collected and analyzed by DEA. This paper implements Knox’s corollary for DEA in assessment, ranking and optimization of telecommunication sectors. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was applied to verify rankings of DEA. Central Asia was found at the bottom of all regions studied.
