US satellite company wins dispute with Costa Rica

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

A US-based satellite telecommunications company has won its lengthy fight to do business in Costa Rica.

VSAT Systems has been trying to get a license from the Costa Rican government for more than three years to offer satellite services in the Central American country.

Company attorneys received a call “out of the blue” recently from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative saying the license finally would be granted and the company could expand into the country this week, VSAT Systems President Mike Kister said Monday.
