The report also indicates a slow growth in regards of broadband Internet in the country, where only 23% of the connections have a speed equal to or greater than 4 Mbps.

Around the world, the average connections at 4 Mbps is 69%. In Latin America, like Chile and Mexico, the connections that meet or exceed that speed is 65%.

In addition, connections in the country that exceed 10 Mbps represents only 1.2% of all connections. Costa Rica did not rank in the Akamia statistics for connections greater 20 Mbps.

According to NIC Costa Rica, the local domain registry maintained by the Academia Nacional de Ciencias, since 2002, Costa Rica has gone from being among the top in the world in broadband Internet connections to one of the worst, below underdeveloped countries, in less that 15 years.

This represents a disadvantage for the country’s national development and competitiveness, according to the NIC Costa Rica.
