ICE launches LTE network

25 Jun 2013

ICE Celular has launched its 2.6GHz LTE network in the west of the Greater Metropolitan Area of San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, reports TeleSemana. The service will connect at speeds of between 10Mbps and 20Mbps via a USB modem. A wider commercial launch in major urban centres will take place in July, and the service will gradually expand until it is available to more than four million subscribers, although ICE provided no fixed timeframe for this expansion.
