Latin American Internet users averaged 29 hours online in June, above the global average of 25 hours.
In Latin America the Internet audience exceeds 53 million, according to data released by comScore. Page views in Brazil are 40 percent higher than the Latin American average.
Brazil comprises the largest online population with 15.8 million monthly unique visitors, though Internet penetration is 11 percent. By contrast, the Internet population in Chile is 5.6 million, but registers an Internet penetration of 45 percent.
Internet users across Latin America tend to spend more time online each month than the global average of 25 hours. In June Latin American Internet browsers averaged 29 hours. ComScore EVP of International Markets Bob Ivins called the Latin American market a "rapidly developing market." He said," Because the Internet was more developed as Latin American users became more engaged, they do searches at a higher rate than the U.S. They got on the slope at a different rate."
