El Salvador mobile subscriber base has reached 6.9 million at 2008-end, reports Signals Telecom Consulting. According to Signals analyst Elias Vicente, the mobile subscriber base growth has resulted into lowered ARPU and the acquisition of a second and even third line per user.
El Salvador, in coming times intends to serve as a “laboratory market” for the launch of new service bundles and value-added multimedia services.
Fixed and wireless internet and pay-TV services will be the key reasons of growth in the domestic mobile market within the next five years.
