Telgua is the biggest telecommunications provider in Guatemala, provides Internet, Telephony, and Cable TV services.


In November 16, 1996, the Guatemalan Congress passed the "Ley General de Telecomunicaciones"; "The General Telecommunications Law" that stipulated the privatization of Guatel, the former, state-owned, telecommunications company. It was purchased by LUCA S.A. and Ricardo H. Bueso became Telgua's first President and CEO until 2000.

In 2000 it joined America Movil and time after it renamed the brands ALO and PCS Digital to Claro on Guatemala.
