An international study found that Internet service Bolivia is among the slowest ten in the world, next to nations living civil wars and instability, such as Libya and Syria.

Bad value for money

The countries with the fastest Internet in the region, according to reports from the IADB, are Uruguay, Chile and Brazil.
