1354254312_460840472_1-samsung-galaxy-s3-I9300-original-com-brinde-centroThe state telecom, the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), got the green light to market its 4G cellular service, following a court decision rejecting the appeal filed by competitor Movistar.

Through a press release, ICE confirmed that it will start promoting the 4G LTE network by mid November.

Movistar’s filing claimed ICE would use a band that excluded other operators.

ICE president, Teofilo de la Torre, explained that “ICE acted within the country’s legal framework, considering that the state telecom was granted in 1998 the rights to frequencies between the 2,500 and 2,690 MHz”.

Movistar spokesperons, Matías Señorán, reiterated that the appeal was not to stop the 4G, but rather intended for an equitable distribtion of the radio spectrum.

4G is a successor to the third generation (3G) standards. A 4G system provides mobile ultra-broadband Internet access, for example to laptops with USB wireless modems, to smartphones, and to other mobile devices. Conceivable applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, 3D television, and cloud computing.
