Costa Rican municipalities are analyzing how to charge for the commercial use of mobile telephony antennas.
Municipalities will study how to implement the charge from a legal and taxation point of view. To date it is not clear who would have to pay: the operator or the company that installs and leases the antenna.
"The issue around the new charge is particularly relevant in the context of an announcement from Costa Rica's Telecommunications Regulator (SUTEL) describing the terms by which the government will grant cell frequency concessions is due to be published in mid August. Three private operators are expected to enter the market," writes Nacion.com.
