RIS has adopted a technologically neutral approach to the NGII. The NGII has four components: two are related to network performance and the other two are affordability and cyber security. Cybersecurity and affordability are necessary conditions for the Next Generation Internet to be widely adopted, for a wide range of applications, and for economic growth stimulation.

The components of the NGII are:

  • Fast Internet: It is measured in upload speeds for mobile and fixed measurements. Upload speeds are a better indicator than download speeds because as networks move to 5G, there will be more communication from the edge to the core of the network, requiring better symmetry between upload and download speeds. AT&T, for example, thinks that demand for symmetrical broadband is only going to grow. Measuring the Internet speed by upload captures symmetry since uploads have to catch up to download speeds. Average upload speeds of 100 Mbps or more score 100%, and below 10 Mbps score 0%. Values in between are evenly spaced.
  • Low Latency: Latency is grouped into 11 categories, with a score of 100% if a country has a latency of 5 ms or lower and a score of 0% if the average latency is more than 50 ms. 5 ms was used rather than the 10 ms to give countries that have already achieved 10 ms a target. Values in between are evenly spaced.
  • Affordability: It is measured as the the lowest cost of 20 GB valid for a month for prepaid customers in a country divided by the Gross National Income per capita per month (GNICM). Countries where 20 GB cost less than 1% of GNICM will score 100%. Countries where 20 GB prepaid cost more than 5% of GNI per capita per month will score 0%. Values in between are evenly spaced.
  • Cybersecurity: It is measured using the National Cyber Security Index (NCSI). It is a global live index, which measures the preparedness of countries to prevent cyber threats and manage cyber incidents. The maximum score according to the NCSI is 100 and will be expressed in percent, like the other components of the NGII.
