44 apply for ISP licences

4 Jun 2009

A total of 44 companies have requested licences to offer internet services from Costa Rican telecoms regulator Sutel, writes BNamericas citing local daily Al Dia. Of the total 27 are waiting for Sutel to grant them initial approval, while the other 17 have passed that hurdle and are now waiting for the regulator to determine whether their proposals meet technical, legal and financial requirements. Approval or rejection could come within a month, the newspaper reported, with the new ISPs expected to start operations by the beginning of July 2009.
