In 2007 Portugal ranked 3rd in terms of full online availability and 4th in terms of online sophistication. In 2009, Portugal shares the podium of the EC eGovernment benchmark with Malta on the two ‘traditional’ benchmark indicators. Both considered citizen and businesses services are fully online. The December 2010 report 'Digitizing Public Services in Europe: Putting ambition into action - 9th Benchmark Measurement' done for the EU commission showed that Portugal is now leading all 32 EU measured countries in the provision of online public services.
