Maintenance work may affect ICE Internet, phone services this week

Telephone and Internet customers from the state-owned Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE-Kölbi) might experience interruptions as the institute carries out maintenance work throughout this week.

The agency alerted the public that work on its telecommunications networks might interrupt landline, mobile and Internet services for home, business and mobile customers.

Work will be carried out all week at specific times and in specific areas, however there will also be three interruptions nationwide during two hours on Tuesday, two and half hours on Thursday and seven hours from Saturday night until the early hours of Sunday.

See ICE’s full schedule with areas and services that might be affected:

Good thing they made the announcement — if not — we would have thought — ”just business as usual with ICE”!!!

Maybe now we’ll get something faster than 1.6 mg service and not throttled. Not holding my breath tho….

Thanks for the heads up. Now I’ll be sure to schedule any heart attacks, calls to police or fire services around those times.
