Cabletica launches 100Mbps broadband in Cartago

11 Mar 2016

Costa Rican full-service provider Cabletica has begun offering broadband connections with speeds of up to 100Mbps in Cartago, using the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network rolled out by utility provider Junta Administrativa del Servicio Electrico Municipal de Cartago (Jasec). El Financiero writes that the network covers some 46,000 homes in nine districts of the province, namely: East, West, Guadalupe, San Nicolas, Carmen, Dulce Nombre, Agua Caliente (all Cartago canton), Tejar (El Guarco canton) and San Rafael (Oreamuno). Cabletica said that it signed an access and interconnection agreement with Jasec to utilise the operator’s FTTH network, adding that the deal allowed it to offer consumers services at the same price as its standard cable-based offerings, enabling it to offer users ‘higher speeds without having to overpay.’
