  • Ewa, Lechman

The paper discuses most current issues on technology implementation dynamics observed across nations, as well as it focuses on the problem of suppose technology convergence (or divergence) among nations. The author implements and verifies the hypothesis on β-convergence, as well as on the quantile convergence. The analysis is run for the sample consisted of 145 economies from all around the world. The time coverage is 2000-2010. All data applied in the research is drawn from the International Telecommunication Union statistical databases.
