El Salvador is set to reach 300,000 lines connected to 4G-LTE networks by the end of this year, barely 5.1 percent of the country's population, according to a study conducted by GlobalData for industry body 5G Americas. However, substantial operator investment will see 4G subscriptions rise to 500,000 next year, 1.3 million in 2020 and 2.5 million in 2022, said the report, adding that there will be 7.1 million mobile broadband lines in 2022 compared to 4.4 million at the end of 2017.
