Arab Open University conducted an online survey to determine the degree of adoption of information and communications technologies (ICTs) in Kingdom of Bahrain. The primary objective of this survey is to develop high-quality indicators of adoption and use of ICTs by individuals and organizations and to understand the overall demand-side dynamics, including barriers to adoption of these technologies. This research presents the key findings of this survey, arguing that some suggested metrics have been used oriented to computer, Internet & Smartphone usage in Bahrain, these metrics are related to the individuals whilst others to the national organizations. A number of implications can be drawn from the findings of the survey. However, the scope of this research is not limited to presenting the aggregate response rather than drawing implications for a future strategic action.
