Lithuania is the best CSE economy in the Digital Quality of Life index published by privacy specialist Surfshark. The index takes into account internet speed and affordability (both broadband and mobile), the presence of personal data protection laws, the state of e-government, the variety and availability of e-entertainment, and the advancement of cyber security. 65 countries were surveyed.
