The Institute also submitted before the Board of the Telecommunications (Sutel) a proceeding to revoke the provision and an appeal to the Regulatory Authority for Public Services.
"George Miley, Sutel´s chairman, said ICE´s decisions are political. We are concerned about taking to court what is a regulatory decision, which may prevent the opening of telecommunications," wrote Nacion.com.
The Union of Chambers "repudiated" the actions taken by the Costa Rican Electricity Institute.
Businessmen expressed concern at recent actions taken by ICE.
"The concern focuses on the legal action filed with the Administrative Court to stop the decision of the Superintendence of Telecommunications (Sutel), which required ICE to lower interconnection prices to their networks for other telecommunications operators," says Elfinancierocr.com.
At the start of privatisation of the cellular market in Costa Rica, the Mexican company Claro is questioning agreements between the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) and the Spanish run Telefónica.
The complaint filed by Claro to the Superintendency of Telecommunications (Sutel) indicates that in the access and interconnection agreement signed between the ICE and Telefonica, there are clauses where both companies are committed to not charging prices below the cost of services rendered, considering interconnection charges as a common expense to both parties.
