ICE’s Red de Acceso de Nueva Generación (Range)

Q COSTA RICA – Stop and think how your Internet usage has evolved during the last few years. If you’re like most, you’re doing — and expecting — a lot more. In Costa Rica, though Internet connection speeds in the Greater Metropolitan Area (GAM) has improved, in the outlying areas, it is still a challenge at best.

One of those areas, Cobano in Puntarenas will soon be getting connections of up to 100Mbps for voice, broadband and TV services as the state-owned operator, the Instituto Costarricense de Electriciad (ICE) announcement plans to install 2,000 FTTH connections.

The plan is part of a major investment by ICE, US$91 million dollars to activated 180,000 next generation access lines across the country in the second half of this year. In second of 2016, ICE says it activated some 103,000 broadband lines.

What is FTTH?

Fiber to the home (FTTH) is the delivery of a communications signal over optical fiber from the operator’s switching equipment all the way to a home or business, thereby replacing existing copper infrastructure such as telephone wires and coaxial cable.

FTTH delivers connection speeds from 20 to 100 times faster than a typical cable modem or DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) connection.
