BRAZIL - A fleet of computers growing

Brazil has 98 million computers next year, allowing it to reach the threshold of a unit for two people, according to a study by the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) on Information Technology published April 20, 2011. These figures are reported by the daily O Globo, which states that four out of nine Brazilians currently have access to a computer at home or at work.

The study also highlights that Brazil is above the world average in terms of penetration of information technology. In 2011, 44% of Brazilians had a computer, while at the global level this rate is 36%. The equipment rate is 130% for mobile and 80% for televisions, against respectively 99% and 58% worldwide.
