Now this is an interesting fact, retrieved from - I am pretty sure that it is not representative, because it only tallies speedgeeks - but if we compare speedgeeks to speedgeeks around the globe, Brazil, which is the 9th largest economy by GDP by PPP (right behind France, Russia and the UK), is still far behind in terms of technology.

Especially if I consider, that today it is possible to get 50mbit broadband in São Paulo (albeit for a fortune), this shows the level of technological inequality in the country. In Latin America, Brazil remains in second, behind Chile (which fits to the GDP/head picture) but on a global scale, 65th place is pretty nasty...
