New Stations to Improve Cell Phone Service
The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE), which oversees the country’s telecommunications monopoly, plans to install six new cell phone radio base stations in May with the goal of improving coverage for users of cell phones with GSM technology.
Areas to benefit from these new stations, which help transmit cell phone signals, include Belén, northwest of San José; the Carimol, Lourdes and Vargas Araya neighborhoods in the canton of Montes de Oca, east of San José; several areas in the Caribbean province of Limón; Carrillo, in the northwestern Guanacaste province; and Garabito, in the Pacific Puntarenas province, ICE said in a statement.
The installation of this new equipment is part of an ICE project being carried out by the technology company Ericsson to improve cell phone service in 58 sites around the country. Seven radio bases have been installed since December 2006 as part of this project, the statement said.
