This is the only offer so far for the 1.5 million mobile phone lines tender, which ICE is promoting since 2007.
Costa Rica's monopoly GSM network operator, ICE, has decided not to accept a sole bid from China's Huawei for the supply of a 3G network.
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.
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.
