Global Crossing and ICE reach landing agreement

5 May 2006

Global Crossing has signed an agreement with Costa Rican fixed line incumbent ICE to land its submarine network on the country’s west coast, writes BNamericas. Global Crossing will link up its Pan American Crossing (PAC) system, which runs from Panama up to Los Angeles, at the Unqui cable landing point in Esterillos, Costa Rica. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of the year. ICE and its wholly owned ISP subsidiary RACSA have undertaken to buy 24 STM-1 private lines from Global Crossing, representing a total bandwidth of 3.7Gbps.
