Company Overview

Movistar is a mobile network operating in El Salvador. The company was formed in 1997 as a subsidiary of international telecommunications giant Telefónica, via its Central American unit Telefónica Centroamérica Inversiones, S.L. Telefónica Móviles El Salvador was wholly acquired by América Móvil in January 2019, following Telefónica Centroamérica Inversiones' divestment of its Guatemalan and El Salvadorian business units.

The company switched on 2G GSM services in October 2004 over the 850 and 1900 MHz bands, and 3G UMTS over B2 (1900 MHz) and B5 (850 MHz) in December 2010. 4G LTE was activated in December 2016 over B2 (1900 MHz). There are unconfirmed reports of B5 (850 MHz) LTE in use.
