Colombia will have 19 million mobile internet connections by 2015, the equivalent of almost one for every two people in the country, reported Colombian weekly Portafolio.
The projection is the result of a study released by GSMA, a global organization of mobile phone operators and equipment manufacturers.
The report estimates that within three years Latin America will have over 305 million mobile internet connections, mainly laptops, tablet computers and smart phones.
With smartphones becoming progressively cheaper, GSM expect sales figures to rise by 111% annually.
Sebasian Cabello, director of GSM Latin America, has identified Colombia as the fourth largest regional market for mobile operators, behind Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.
