Uruguay: la mejor conexión a Internet de América

21 October 2014
Según el informe correspondiente al segundo trimestre del año 2014 “State of the Internet Report” de Akamai, empresa líder en servicios de Internet, Uruguay se transformó en el país de América con la mejor velocidad máxima promedio de acceso a Internet, y se ubica en el treceavo puesto a nivel mundial.

 

- 197% de aumento de velocidad promedio de acceso a Internet de la población con respecto al año anterior (2013).   225% de aumento promedio en cuanto a las velocidades

máximas de acceso con respecto al año anterior (2013).
Se trata del mayor crecimiento anual de todos los países 
analizados en el informe, en el cual lo califican de "impresionante"  
 

 


- Uruguay aumentó en el año 2014 en casi más de 150 veces (14917%) la cantidad de servicios de acceso a Internet con velocidades superiores a los 10 Mbps comparado con respecto
al año anterior.

 

 


- Por otro lado, también creció en el 2014 aproximadamente 35 veces (3455%) la cantidad de servicios de acceso a Internet con velocidades superiores a los 4 Mbps con respecto al año anterior. (el mayor aumento de todos los países analizados)

 

 


 

- El estudio además pretende clasificar a los países de acuerdo a la conectividad y la capacidad de su red para visualizar contenidos 4K (lo que se conoce hoy en día como "Ultra HD", con anchos de banda requeridos que oscilan entre 10 y 20 Mbps). Uruguay figura allí como el país mejor posicionado de LATAM.
