    Internet Access Coming to Rural Areas of Costa RicaThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Four firms submitted bids for telecommunications plans to bring Internet services and fixed telephone lines to over 200,000 people in rural areas of Costa Rica, according to the Superintendent of Telecommunications (Sutel).

    The state Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE), the Mexican course, the Spanish Telefonica under the Movistar brand and local company E-diay (Datatel), are the four companies participating in the third contest of the National Telecommunications Fund (Fonatel).

    Some 45,000 students from over 500 schools, in communities like Guatuso, Los Chiles, San Carlos and Sarapiqui Upala, located in the north of the country near the border with Nicaragua, are the first to be benefited by the Fonatel projects, Sutel said in a statement.

    After completing this part of the process, work will begin so that people can contract these services in communities that have spent years waiting for access to a telephone.

    Fonatel team will review the bids received today and in the coming weeks, five projects covering the northern part of the country will be awarded.

    Last July, Sutel awarded Telefónica a project to bring Internet to select communities in the province of Limón, in the Caribbean, which had ten years of waiting for access to these services. (EFE)
