ICE Opens Up Its Telecommunications Network


Costa Rica’s Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) has interfaced its network with Ticom and CallMyWay, two telecom companies offering VOIP services.

The state-owned electricity and telecommunications will provide service to the two companies after presenting their requests to the Costa Rica’s Telecommunications Regulator (SUTEL). reports that ICE stated, “the linking of the networks has been carried out under protest in order to comply with the SUTEL instruction. ICE considers that the regulator has resorted to procedural illegalities in order to force the interfacing of these two companies”.

At the beginning of last week, Intertel Worldwide, Dodona SRL (Ament) and BBG Global AG, all signed deals to connect to ICE’s network, to provide new internet and VOiP services to its customers, who now have to wait SUTEL approval.
