The number of Hondurans accessing the internet via their desktop or mobile devices has grown by 600,000 over the past year to reach around 3 million users, according to We Are Social data cited by local daily La Prensa. The figure is equivalent to around 36 percent of the country's population, some 25 percent more than a year ago but still lagging behind neighbouring countries such as Costa Rica (87%), Panama (70%), El Salvador (55%), Belize (49%) and Guatemala (37%).
