Costa Rica is above the Latin American average in the coverage of LTE 4G connections, according to a 5G Americas report.
LTE stands for “Long Term Evolution” and refers to a connection standard used in mobile telephony with 4G technology. In the world of telecommunications, 4G refers to the fourth generation of mobile networks.
In Costa Rica, 27.8% of the population has access to these connections, and the Latin American average stands at 22.5%.
The country with the highest coverage in the sub-region is Uruguay, with 79.6%. They are followed by Argentina (36%) Chile (30.8%), Brazil (28.9%) and Costa Rica.
The report also highlights the growth of these connections at the regional level, with Bolivia being the only country that registered a negative variation between the second and third quarter of 2016, dates of the most recent data.
The pillar for the growth of the use of this technology is the release of more frequencies in the region, concludes 5G Americas.
