Residential internet penetration in Costa Rica rose 8% year on year to 65%of the country’s homes last year, according to a report from the National Statistics and Census Institute (INEC).

The penetration rate increased in spite of a 4% decline in the number of homes with computers to 46%, said the report.

By contrast, the country’s mobile phone penetration rate was 170.4% at the end of 2016, according to another recent report.
