The Costa Rican Institute of Electricity purchased new systems for expanding its Advanced Internet Network.
Friday, August 14, 2009
The purchase includes Cisco router processors, electronic cards, commutation equipment and power sources, among others. The provider will be GBM Costa Rica.
Slow but cheap connections predominate in Costa Rica's broadband market, according to the twice-yearly Cisco Broadband Barometer survey.
Starting this week the company will offer its own Internet connection service, after years of carrying Racsa’s service through its cable network.
If the announcements made become a reality, there will be two fiber optic networks providing households with access to broadband digital services, with a subsidiary competing with its parent company.
Starting February, ICE will increase the price of mobile internet for its 3G network.
