Geroge Miley, president of the Telecommunications Superintendence (Sutel), explained that the delay is due to a lack of definition on the frequencies to be used for installing private networks.
The Telecommunications Superintendence (Sutel) will host an informative meeting with companies interested in obtaining a frequency for mobile telephony services.
December 14 is the deadline for reception of offers, but it won´t be until late 2011 that the market will finally be open to competition.
This week, the telecommunications superintendence (SUTEL) will publish preliminary bidding rules for opening the telephony market.
The Costa Rica state telecom company is moving away from the purpose that justifies its existence and is impeding the exercise of the popular will in terms of the cellular market opening up.
