Despite promises, Wi-Fi grows only 1% in 10 months in Brazil
Despite promises of telecom providers, Wi-Fi goes down in Brazil and is little used for the provision of services to consumers. Officially, only 54 were installed new Wi-Fi hotspots in Brazil between January and October this year, according compiled by the portal Teleco.

The capital remained the same ACCOUNTING 151 hotspots in December 2010. In total, according to the study of Teleco, Brazil has 4,051 hotspots installed. This represents only 0.5% of the world - 679,821.
