This was reported by elfinancierocr.com, whose article states that "This network would be installed through 2009 and would imply an increase in the number of mobile phones per inhabitant of up to 65%, reported Claudio Bermúdez, ICE's vice director of communications".
The second tender process for the 3G network will be launched this week after the failure of the first process.
The Costa Rica Institute of Electricity (ICE) confirmed yesterday that it has rejected Huawei Technologies' offer for 1.5 million 3G cellular lines.
ICE (Costa Rican Institute of Electricity) will continue to study the sole offer, by Huawei, to install 1.5 million third generation (3G) cellular lines in the country.
Oscar Arias recommended to officials of the Costa Rica Institute of Electricity (ICE) that they not grant the contract for the project to the only company that participated in the bidding process.
