Research and Markets: Guatemala - Telecoms Mobile and Broadband

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Guatemala - Telecoms Mobile and Broadband" report to their offering.

Guatemala is the largest telecom market in Central America, but has been held back by poverty, crime, and corruption. Guatemala's social development indicators, such as infant mortality and illiteracy, are among the worst in Latin America. While Guatemala's capital city enjoys a modern telecom network, the rest of the country's fixed-line infrastructure is inadequate and antiquated. Nevertheless, Guatemala's mobile penetration is remarkably high considering the country's extremely low GDP per capita. Mobile telephony is the fastest growing market by far; in fact, there are more than seven times as many mobile phones as fixed lines in service. This report provides an overview of the country's telecom sector accompanied by relevant statistics and analyses.
