    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Costa Rican government supports the proposal that is on the table by Sutel so that the consumer is charged for Internet downloading. An announcement was made this afternoon after the weekly meeting of the Governing Council.

    The Minister of Science and Technology, Gisella Kopper said a 5% consumer guzzling is distorting the service for the rest, and that is the argument by the telecommunications provider (Sutel).

    The chief gave the example with water service and people who open their faucets further or “blasting” and other citizens who use less liquid in their day to day.

    “The idea is to charge for downloads that’s the way it is used globally, so providers will give us packages according to what we need,” Kopper justified.

    The Superintendent of Telecommunications (Sutel) requested by trade, charging for Internet downloads for mobile phones to be postpaid, according to a decision issued by the Council of the Regulator. 

    This means unlimited download packages will no longer be marketed in this way, but the customer must pay for each downloaded KB. The proposed rate is 0.0075 colones (without tax) for both methods of payment, regardless of the speed that is engaged. Prepaid customers were already paying for each KB.

    Kopper insisted that the Sutel proposal she supports, does not affect the goal of having more and fuller coverage in the country, as it promotes a differentiated collection only. She insisted that those who use more should pay more.

    The public can give its opinion on the idea , either at the public hearing to be held on July 1 or through the Ombudsman. The defense requested the entity intervene and to clarify that SUTEL can justify the change.

    The Minister of the Presidency, Melvin Jimenez, confirmed support as well.
