ICE Withdraws Interconnection Claim

The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad said it withdrew the lawsuit in a conflict it has with Sutel.

ICE's decision to go to court had received harsh criticism from the business sector because it had created another roadblock in the process of opening the telecommunications market.
