Johnny Araya of the National Liberation Party (PLN by its initials in Spanish) and José María Villalta from the Broad Front (Frente Amplio) party, said they would allow the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) to explore geothermal energy in the Rincón de la Vieja National Park in Guanacaste.
Telefónica has filed a lawsuit so that the state telecom company refrains from using the 2.6 GHz band to operate its 4G LTE network.
The lawsuit by the company that operates under the Movistar brand was filed against the state and the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE). The measure also aims to ensure that ICE refrains from promoting or informing on its intention to provide fourth generation cellular services until the court issues a ruling.
Intertel Worldwide competes directly with ICE in international calling, with rates up to five times lower than the state enterprise.
ICE (the Costa Rican Institute of Electricity) denounced the situation before the recently created Telecommunications Superintendent (SUTEL), arguing that Intertel Worldwide has not yet been authorized to operate. The new business responded that it is operating in the same manner in which cyber cafés that offer international calls via the Internet do.
Grupo ICE, composed of the Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) and its subsidiaries Radiográfica Costarricense (RACSA) and Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz (CNFL), joined the Chamber of Information and Communication Technologies of Costa Rica (CAMTIC) as a strategic partner since June 2009.
The Chamber of Information and Communication Technologies (CAMTIC for its acronym in Spanish) is a nonprofit private trade organization for IT companies representative in Costa Rica & Central America.
