Jasec to officially open FTTH network

21 May 2015

Carthage-based energy provider Junta Administrativa del Servicio Electrico Municipal de Cartago (Jasec) is set to officially launch its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network today, El Financiero reports. The operator began providing services over the network in January this year, offering downlink speeds of 5Mbps-100Mbps. Although no details have yet been made public, the operator is understood to be planning partnerships with other operators. Alongside Jasec, utility cooperative Cooperativa de Electrificacion Rural de Guanacaste (Coopeguanacaste) and state-backed operator Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), which provides telecom services under the Kolbi banner, are also rolling out FTTH infrastructure, with plans to launch in June and September respectively.
