Several researches have been carried out with respect to ICT Infrastructure Investments made by nations in a bid to bridge the digital divide and improve quality of life and the Human Development Index (HDI). With a strong argument being made in the literature for continued investments in ICT Infrastructure, this research investigated the relative efficiency and productivity of ICT Infrastructure Utilization in Education. The research employed the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Malmquist Index (MI) non-parametric research methodology with Arab States, Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa and World regions forming the Decision-Making Units. With Data collected from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the International Tel-ecommunications Union (ITU), findings show a relatively efficient utilization and steady increase in productivity for the regions but with only Europe and Arab States currently operating in a state of positive growth in produc-tivity.
