Kölbi stepped up its 4G coverage ahead of the expansion of Tigo’s cellular service, whose purchase of the Movistar services in Costa Rica is soon to be approved.

Kölbi, the brand of the state-owned Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), is spending millions of dollars on expanding its services, as its coverage expansionists throughout the country, La República reports in Spanish.

Kölbi already had the largest coverage in the country; the investment would increase the internet connection speed of customers and the amount of data that can be downloaded.

Proof of this is that Kölbi was positioned as the operator with the best coverage, the fastest speed, and the best video viewing and data transmission experience as of June 2019, according to a study last week by the government regulator Sutel and Open Signal.

“Being a leader is a commitment that distinguishes us and requires us to give the best to our customers, who have the support of the most robust telecommunications network and number one in the region. We guarantee the best video experience, speed and quality of service,” said Jaime Palermo, ICE’s corporate telecommunications director, and interim general manager.

However, Kölbi would face a new telecommunications giant, since Tigo would not only inherit a portfolio of more than 2.3 million Movistar (Telefonica) mobile clients but also has an important position in the cable, satellite, residential Internet television, and IP telephony.

Tigo currently occupies second place in the market in the number of subscribers of residential Internet service and paid television.
