Movistar Costa Rica on target for 100% 4G coverage by end-2021

23 Mar 2021

Johanna Escobar, the country director for Telefonica Costa Rica (Movistar), has informed La Republica that 100% of its cell sites will be 4G-capable by the end of 2021. She noted: ‘By 2021, 100% of our sites will be fourth-generation and we will be the first operator in the country to reach this milestone … We have had an aggressive expansion plan since the beginning of 2020, and despite the COVID-19 pandemic we were able to maintain and implement it. Almost 300 3G sites [were upgraded] to 4G LTE to maximise the customers’ internet experience.’ The investment will be focused on the Atlantico, Guanacaste and Zona Norte regions, with additional connectivity along the Pacific coast – from border to border.
