Internet use in Brazil in 2022 There were 165.3 million internet users in Brazil in January 2022. Brazil’s internet penetration rate stood at 77.0 percent of the total population at the start of 2022. Kepios analysis indicates that internet users in Brazil increased by 5.3 million (+3.3 percent) between 2021 and 2022. For perspective, these user figures reveal that 49.37 million people in Brazil did not use the internet at the start of 2022, meaning that 23.0 percent of the population remained offline at the beginning of the year. However, issues relating to COVID-19 continue to impact research into internet adoption, so actual internet user figures may be higher than these published numbers suggest (see here for further details).

Mobile connections in Brazil in 2022 Data from GSMA Intelligence shows that there were 224.9 million cellular mobile connections in Brazil at the start of 2022. However, note that many people around the world make use of more than one mobile connection – for example, they might have one connection for personal use, and another one for work – so it’s not unusual for mobile connection figures to significantly exceed figures for total population. GSMA Intelligence’s numbers indicate that mobile connections in Brazil were equivalent to 105 percent of the total population in January 2022. The number of mobile connections in Brazil increased by 12 million (+5.6 percent) between 2021 and 2022.
