"Because of its size and rapid development, the Internet industry in Latin America is an exciting region to track and analyze," said Bob Ivins, executive vice president of comScore International Markets. "We have been reporting country-specific browsing data from the comScore panel for a number of years, but this is the first time we have compared metrics across the region."
