Costa Rica broadband aim is 15 percent of population

Friday, March 8, 2013

The Costa Rican government expects 16 percent of the population to have a broadband connection by 2016.

Although the average Internet connection speed has tripled in Costa Rica in the last three years, it is still slower than the average speeds of other Latin American countries.

According to Costa Rica’s National Broadband Strategy, published by the Science, Technology and Telecommunications Ministry, improving broadband access can help boost productivity – especially in the export sector – and quicken the delivery of public services.
