El Salvador now also covered by our Americas Telecoms service 06 March 18

With the exception of very few countries, telecommunications services in the Americas have long been liberalised, foreign ownership restrictions have been removed, and national regulatory authorities, implementing and supervising over the sector’s regulation, have been established.

In several countries the sector regulator has become (or has recently been proposed to become) a 'convergent' regulator, covering multiple sectors, including telecommunications and media services. In El Salvador, SIGET regulates both the telecommunications and the electricity sector, as also observed in other Central American countries.
