The vast majority of Peruvians still don’t have access to the internet, according to a recent study.

A new report published by INEI – the country’s National Statistics and Information Institute – said that less than 20 percent of Peruvian homes had internet access.

The report, quoted by Peru21, found that 35 percent of Lima homes had internet access, 5.1 points higher than the number recorded in 2011.

Meanwhile, 18.9 percent of homes in urban areas have internet access, while only 0.7 percent of rural homes had access.

According to the INEI report, 50.6 percent of respondents said they used internet booths to go online.

The report also found that 29 percent of Peruvian homes had a computer, a 3.9 percent increase compared to the previous year.
