Digicel users can access over 40 sites free of charge, including those of daily La Prensa Grafica, Facebook, Messenger and Wikipedia. The app for Android is available in 37 countries worldwide. In Latin America, El Salvador is the seventh country to be added, in Central America it is the third. It is estimated that half the population of El Salvador has no internet access.
