New company promises efficient energy products
Following the opening of Costa Rica’s cellphone market recently, Mexican company América Móvil, known locally as Claro, has already stepped up its presence here, leasing space at local shopping malls and preparing to install numerous cellphone towers throughout the country.
According to the Costa Rican business newspaper El Financiero, Claro has leased retail space at Terramall in Cartago, Plaza del Sol in Curridabat, Multiplaza Escazú and Paseo de las Flores in Heredia.
The company also plans to lease more retail outlets, including in San Rafael de Escazú and Multiplaza de Este, the paper reported.
While it may be months before the retail outlets and customer service kiosks open, the company is close to signing a final contract with the government.
The company is also filing the necessary paperwork with municipalities across the country to build and locate cellphone towers, which is proving to be more challenging than expected, company officials say.
