Internet Penetration Rate Grows 25.4% in Chile

SANTIAGO – The Internet penetration rate grew 25.4 percent in March, compared to the same month last year, the Chilean Telecommunications Undersecretariat, or Subtel, said.

A total of 2.3 million new Internet connections were added in March, bringing the total number of connections in the country to 11.5 million, the Subtel said.

Access to the Internet has been growing as a result of policies implemented by the government, the expansion of 3G and 4G service, and the introduction of a portability system, the Subtel said.

The penetration rate for both landline and wireless 3G and 4G connections rose from 52.1 per 100 people in March 2014 to 64.2 per 100 people in March 2015.

“We’re developing different projects that will allow society’s access to information to be more democratic and these figures show that we’re going in the right direction,” Telecommunications and Transportation Minister Andres Gomez-Lobo said.

Voice traffic fell 4.5 percent in the first quarter of this year, compared to the same period in 2014, mainly because subscribers are using applications like WhatsApp, the Subtel said.
