Telecom market in Central America is growing despite widespread poverty
Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has added a new report showing that poverty in Central America is more widespread than in the rest of Latin America, and this is reflected in the development of telecommunications.

“2008 Latin America - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in Central America” reports that apart from Costa Rica, fixed-line teledensity in the Central American nations is lower than average for Latin America, while in mobile telephony, only El Salvador and Panama are slightly above the regional average. Nevertheless, all telecoms markets are growing.
The telecoms company merged with Columbus International announced its entry into the Costa Rican market, where it will focus on the segment of corporate services.
The market was declared dead several years ago, but the government of Costa Rica has been keeping it alive artificially at the expense of taxpayers purses.
The Asian company Datang Mobile will support the government in installing high-tech infrastructure.
A study by Signals Telecom Consulting estimated that in 2015 Salvadoran telecommunications companies will sell more than $1.870 million.
