Digicel earmarks USD 450 mln for El Salvador 4G rollout

Wednesday 15 February 2017 | 09:07 CET | News
Digicel plans to invest some USD 450 million in rolling out its 4G network in El Salvador over the next five years, group president and founder Denis O'Brien told local daily El Mundo in an interview. The service will be launched in 14 departments all over the country in the next three or four months, said O'Brien, without specifying the spectrum to be used by the company for LTE. Digicel will be the third local operator to launch 4G just a few months after rivals Movistar (Telefonica) and Tigo.
