Bolivia Internet Usage and Broadband:


Bolivia - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media
Although Bolivia has enjoyed strong economic growth in recent years, GDP remains among the lowest in South America. Many areas of the country outside the main cities are poor and undeveloped, and there is a sizeable proportion of the population which live in remote valleys and areas where telecom infrastructure has been chronically neglected. As a result, the penetration of telecom services is low. See report summary here.
