Uruguay Has South America's Fastest Net

Categories: Latin America, Uruguay, Citizen Media, Technology

Not that long ago, I'd never thought I could report this, but here we are. According to Netindex, Uruguay is the country with the fastest average speed in Latin America, with 9,53Mbps, and that places us 57 at a global level, over Chile (58), Mexico (71) and Brazil (75).

The blog Tan conectados (Como valientes) [1] [es] announces Uruguay's new position in the region and analyzes what's behind this achievement. However, it also mentions that “even as leaders in the region and moving closer to those 50 first places, we are far below the average global speed of 13,07Mbps”.
