Costa Rican telecom provider picks Telia Carrier to empower broadband Internet access in Central America.

M2 EQUITYBITES-January 23, 2018-Costa Rican telecom provider picks Telia Carrier to empower broadband Internet access in Central America


Costa Rica's state-owned telecommunications provider, the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE), and Telia Carrier has announced that ICE has selected Telia Carrier's global fiber backbone to provide dedicated Internet access to its customers in Central America, the company said.

ICE, the largest over-the-top (OTT) operator in Central America and the number one retail ISP in Central America and the Caribbean (Dyn IP Transit Intelligence Jan 2018), is experiencing growing demand for broadband services. Gaining access to Telia Carrier's tier-1 Internet backbone will enable ICE to launch the first 100G IP Transit services for their operation in Central America.

Telia Carrier's global backbone, which is built on a redundant architecture, reaches the most important gateway for Central America, the Maya-1 Cable system. This system, together with Telia Carrier's IP Transit services in the US, play an important role in supplying the demands of ICE. The new solution includes Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection, which ICE can count on to provide the highest standards of protection to its end customers and their business critical applications.

Telia Carrier owns and operates one of the world's most extensive fiber backbones. Discover more at
