No pre-paid cellphones in Costa Rica
Costa Rica has no pre-paid system for cellphones, and that can't be right, Carlos Dalton writes in La República. Not only is pre-paid service one of the best businesses in telephony, it also provides solidarity with the most needy members of society.

Institutions such as the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) were established to offer electrical and communications services to all the nation's inhabitants. One has to ask: What are the ICE board and management doing to provide a service that not only makes sound business sense for them (the profitability of the state telephone company) but also is in the interests of the nation's people?
The Comptroller’s Office of the Republic ordered ICE to analyze if the price offered by Huawei Technologies would permit it to comply with the contract.
Three appeals against the process for acquiring the equipment need for the system will delay the marketing of that technology.
The Comptroller’s Office rejected the awarding of a total of 2.5 million prepaid lines for cellular and land line telephone systems, granted to the Chinese Huawei Technologies.
The Spanish company Movilway is offering recharging services and transactions via mobile phones.
