The Institute rejected a letter from President Oscar Arias, who requested that they hold a new tender process so that more companies can take part.
The Costa Rica Institute of Electricity (ICE) confirmed yesterday that it has rejected Huawei Technologies' offer for 1.5 million 3G cellular lines.
The second tender process for the 3G network will be launched this week after the failure of the first process.
