The Death Throes of a Monopoly
The state monoply squeezes what it can out of the opening of the Costa Rican telecommunications market.
Monday, July 26, 2010
An article on El Financiero's web portal states that buying a cell phone plan from Costa Rica's state-owned electricity and telecommunications provider (ICE), "costs up to $500 more than buying one separately".
Between the two carriers 100,000 new lines are sold a month and they already have a market share of 20%.
The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) filed a complaint in court against Sutel due to the new interconnection fees.
The regulator gave 10 days to state owned electricity company ICE to amend the interconnection fees.
According to the official schedule, the first bands of frequency will be awarded in May 2008.
