Internet in the countryside increased from 49% to 55%

IBGE released the data from the Continuous Pnad that researched access to Information and Communication Technology (ICT). According to the figures the percentage of Brazilian households that have access to the internet rose from 79.1% to 82.7% from 2018 to 2019, representing a rise of 3.6 percentage points. Even so that year 12.6 million did not have access. The main reasons given for the difficulty in connecting are lack of interest, expensive service and the fact that no resident in the household knows how to use the technology.
