Discovering Argentina

Argentina is a Spanish-speaking Latin American country that has a large portion of its population online. The number of Internet users in the country has been estimated at 16 million in 2007 and almost 27 million in 2010, which is a whopping 64 percent of the total population. As of 2008, among the 7 million PCs registered in Argentina, the number of residential and business computers connected to the Internet totaled about 3.3 million, 92 percent of which were connected via broadband access to the Internet. Those without access to a PC at home can use Internet cafes called locutorios, so even those who don’t own computers may still have online access.

The most popular search engines in Argentina are Google Argentina (www.google.com.ar) and Yahoo! Argentina (http://ar.yahoo.com), with Bing not really registering on the radar.
