RACSA, the subsidiary of the once-telecommunications monopoly ICE, promises ultra-fast Internet communications are coming for their customers next January.

Company manager Orlando Cascante blamed delays on RACSA’;s Swedish parter, Via Europa, for the January target date for offering the service. Not only is service to be faster but it will be much cheaper.

RACSA’s customers have longed for a break for quite a while. The subsidiary has been a worry for parent ICE when customers began abandoning its service when the market opened up.

Revenues dropped as service declined and customers fled until, in 2011, ICE was forced to give RACSA a company bailout to keep it afloat in a sea of red ink.

RACSA management hopes the rot will stop when it is able to offer 10 Mpbs service for the colon equivalent of $50 per month. Currently, the same service costs customers $100 per month, reported La Nacion.

Cascante said the service will be provided by the lines of the Power and Light Company — also an ICE subsidiary.

Originally, Cascante announced, at a function called last Sept. 24  by President Laura Chinchilla, that the service would begin this month. But what he should have said is that RACSA was ready — but the Swedish partner wasn’t.
