Costa Rica: Proposal for Mobile Data Consumption

On October 28th the Telecommunications Superintendency will be giving a public presentation on the charges for downloading via internet on postpaid mobile phones.

Friday, October 2, 2015

From a statement issued by the Superintendency of Telecommunications:

Users will have new charging scheme for postpaid mobile internet

The Superintendency of Telecommunications (Sutel) today announced an additional proposal for a charging scheme for data transfer internet services for postpaid mobile phones, which will be submitted to public consultation in the coming days and will allow users to choose the payment method that best suits their interests.

Currently, consumers of postpaid mobile internet services have only one tariff scheme for speed, which means that even without using the service or if they have low consumption, they have to pay a fixed monthly amount. However, this proposal is to charge only for the data transfer actually consumed.
