Q COSTA RICA NEWS – Costa Rica is set to use the country’s road network as part of a plan to expand internet coverage via public infrastructure, reports La Nacion, citing deputy  minister of the Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología y Telecomunicaciones (Micitt), Edwin Estrada.

Under the terms of the draft project, fibre-optic networks will be rolled out underneath newly-laid or rehabilitated roads to facilitate expansion and maintenance. “We believe this is an ideal way to address the major challenges of connectivity in urban areas where competition for space and the need to wait for permits can be challenging,” said Estrada.

The project comes after the country’s Coordination Commission for Installing or Expanding

The Action Plan was presented in April, with stated the plan is based on four pillars, ranging from the improvement and issue of standards, the optimal use of resources and existing infrastructure, to informing and training officials of state institutions and creating mechanisms for interagency coordination.

According to estimates by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Telecommunications, the cost of the Action Plan is ¢255 million colones  ( US$465,000).
