For the first time internet access via mobile phone surpassed that via PC. Among Brazilians aged 10 years or over that regularly access the internet, 89 percent do so via mobile phone, while 65 percent do so via desktop, laptop or tablet. In 2014, 80 percent accessed via PC and 76 percent via mobile phone. The number of Brazilians who only access the internet via mobile devices grew from 19 percent in 2014 to 35 percent in 2015. Wi-Fi access (87%) surpassed access via 3G and 4G networks (72%). In addition, in homes with internet access, 79 percent had Wi-Fi in 2015 (+13% y/y).
