Costa Rica is coming into the 21st Century with added High Speed Internet to Guanacaste
The High Speed Internet arrives in Mal Pais & Santa Teresa
Pacific surf towns of Mal País, Santa Teresa and El Carmen have just become better connected.
The country’s fiber optics network is being expanded on the southern end of the Nicoya Peninsula.
The improvements will allow for up to 800 customers to purchase ultra broadband Internet services of up to 100 Mbps, reports ICE
The fiber optic network will bring enhanced television, internet and fixed telephone services to the area as it replaces the current copper network. The change will begin with 100 users in and around Mal Pais, allowing for access to triple play services, and will be extended in stages to the communities of Santa Teresa and El Carmen de Cóbano, according to ICE.
“Many of our clients are foreigners and they demand first world services. With this technological solution we will provide that, and contributing to tourism and the local economies,” said Jaime Palermo, ICE telecom manager.
ICE officials are informing the local residents of the new services that will soon be offered in an announcement on Facebook.
Starting in March, the fiber optics project will begin to be replicated in 10 other areas of the country including Barva de Heredia and Quepos, two other popular destinations for foreign visitors and residents.
