Internet against censorship in Venezuela

February 19, 2014

venezuela protestThe media siege has made the citizens of Venezuela turn to the network to stay informed, but even there they are not free from censorship. According to the activist and journalist Luis Carlos Díaz, it is estimated that 44% of Venezuelans have access to the Internet (for 2011, the figure was 40%); that is, more than 12 million people.

It is estimated that 10.5 million Venezuelans are Facebook users and there are between 3 and 4 million Twitter accounts in the country – not necessarily all of them active. Likewise, by May 2013, it was estimated that more than a quarter of the country’s population connected to the Internet through a mobile phone.

In the nation, the main Internet provider (ISP) is the Compania Anónima Nacional Telefonos de Venezuela (CANTV), which represents 87% of the country’s connections. This is especially risky.
