160844_telefono_telefonia_070313The Superintendencia de Telecomunicaciones (SUTEL) rejected a rate hike request by the state telecom, the  Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE). ICE had asked for an increase of ¢4 and ¢11 colones for fixed line telephone service.

The request was made to the regulatory body on January 29, however, more than a dozen objections filed with the SUTEL led to the refusal.

The SUTEL has asked for a market analysis on the current rates, which report is to be filed within three months, before ICE can again apply for a rate increase.
