Municipalities in Costa Rica aim to cash in on opening of market in mobile phones
Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Municipalities in Costa Rica are looking to cash in on the opening of the telecommunications market by charging operators a tax or license fee to erect and maintain radio towers.
This would be the first time that municipalities would be allowed some control on the location of the radio base towers and a new source of revenue.
The change comes with the move forward in the opening of Costa Rica's mobile telecommunications market with the expected three new operators to be approved to operate separate cellular networks later this year.
