Brazil's president says the nation has nearly doubled its high-speed internet connections in the past year.
President Dilma Rousseff says there are now 72 million such connections in Latin America's largest nation.
She says 6 million families have signed up for low-cost high-speed Internet access through the government's four-year, $6 billion National Broadband Plan.
The government aims to have 40 million households hooked up through the plan by 2014.
Private studies have shown that broadband access in Brazil is more expensive than most nations, averaging about $42 per month.
But the government plan provides access for prices starting at about half that.
