Claro (formerly CTE Telecom) is a mobile and fixed phone, broadband and television service provider in El Salvador.

Formerly controlled by parent company CTE Telecom in El Salvador[1] (owned by América Móvil of Mexico), the company started its wireless service as "Personal" around 1999, and later added "ALÓ" with the motto "Facil y Rapido" (Spanish for "Easy and Fast ").[citation needed] In 2009, America Movil unified the brand in Latin America under the name Claro.[1]
