    Over 4,300 Costa Rican Public Schools Now Have Internet AccessTo begin the 2014 school year, 96% of schools across the country have internet connection, through a digital social agreement of the Ministry of Public Education (MEP).

    The MEP uses six different technologies to provide at least one internet connection to 4,320 schools, thus giving the possibility for the student population and faculty to have connection, regardless of the geographic location of the institution.

    Implementing ADSL technology enables broadband access via landline, which reaches 2,727 connections with speeds ranging from 1 Megabits per second (Mbps) to 512 Mbps

    Otherwise, 1,577 schools in the MEP receive Internet through Datacard, which works through the 3G mobile network.

    Other technologies were used for a handful of schools to ensure that they have Internet connections.

    The aim is to cover the 4,530 public schools that exist throughout the country and improve the connection speed in the connected institutions, which have agreements with the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), the National Fund Telecommunications (FONATEL), and others.
