2021年有70個國家參與評比,評比標準分為上網阻礙(obstacles to access)、內容限制(limits on content)、侵犯用戶權利(violations of user rights)三個指標,評估各國家的網路使用狀況,2021年網路自由評比排名第一的是冰島,愛沙尼亞、加拿大和哥斯大黎加並列第三,台灣排第五。

In 2021, a total of 70 countries were included and the organization assessed the freedom of Internet use by citizens in each country. Rankings were based on three major indicators: obstacles to access, limits on content, and violations of user rights.

The 2021 report saw Iceland ranking first, Estonia, Canada, and Costa Rica tieing for third, and Taiwan ranking fifth.

根據報告,全球網路自由度已連續11年下滑,這表示各國對網路自由的控制愈來愈多,這一年來網路自由度下降最多的是發生政變的緬甸。報告指出台灣政府不會審查網路上的內容、不會限制使用網路、屏蔽網站,網路上的內容也非常多元,這也是台灣首次評比就能排名如此前面的原因。

According to the report, Internet freedom around the world has declined for 11 consecutive years, indicating that countries are increasingly controlling Internet freedom, with Myanmar being one of the low points following the political coup earlier this year.

The report also pointed out that the Taiwanese government does not censor content on the Internet, does not restrict the use of the Internet, does not block websites, and the content on the Internet is very diverse, resulting in its high ranking.
