New High-Speed Service Available to Businesses

January 18, 2008
The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) plans to offer a new variety of super high-speed, high-volume Internet connections to companies in the Central Valley.
Known as the Red Metro Ethernet (Metro Ethernet Network), the service will offer connections of between 6 megabits per second and 1 gigabit per second. (By comparison, ADSL and cable Internet connections for a home operate between 128 kilobits and 1.5 megabits per second.)
ICE said it will begin offering 3,800 of the high-volume connections this year, though the agency has yet to set a start date.
ICE has invested about $5 million in the service, according to a press statement.
