4G mobile network will begin operating June 30 to limited users

April 8, 2014

The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) announced Wednesday the launching of the fourth generation of telecommunications technology (4G) in Costa Rica. The new mobile network will begin operating on June 30.

The new network will be installed one zone at a time, beginning on the west side of San José, in Escazú, Santa Ana and Pavas. Service will then extend to the east side of the capital, including Montes de Oca, Curridabat and La Unión, and eventually, all of the Greater Metropolitan Area by the end of the year.

The mobile network performance will be first tested by a group of previously selected customers, according to their bandwidth usage needs.

Those interested in acquiring 4G technology devices and services can subscribe as of July 1 at ICE branches in San José. The official launch of the service for all users will be in August.

The 4G network will allow data transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than those offered by the current 3G network.
