In recent news, Latin America will close 2018 with a total of 82.2 million fixed broadband connections, an increase of nearly 6% when compared to 2017, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Also in this edition, according to market research, over 60% of consumers decide on a brand, model, and price of a vehicle online, before visiting a dealership. As such, KIA and Atento have launched a customer relationship management strategy that will increase customer satisfaction and efficiency thanks to the use of digital technologies and an omni-channel interaction platform.
