South Korea was No. 1 in development of its information and communications technologies (ICT), a U.N. agency said Monday, relegating Denmark to second place.

On its Website, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) said Asia's fourth-largest economy ranked first among 167 countries surveyed. Last year, South Korea lost its top spot to Denmark for the first time since 2010.

Iceland came in at third, followed by Britain, Sweden, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Finland. Hong Kong and Norway also made the top 10 list. 

By sector, South Korea had high rankings in the percentage of households with Internet access, in secondary gross enrollment ratio, in fixed (wired)-broadband Internet subscriptions per 100 inhabitants and active mobile-broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants, respectively.
