Costa Rica takes more time on competition

Costa Rican telecoms regulator, Sutel, has delayed its decision on the competitiveness of the nation’s telecoms markets until November 2016, reports TeleGeography. “If the market is deemed competitive, Sutel will deregulate tariffs, providing operators with greater control over their offerings and allowing them greater flexibility to introduce new services more easily. The process has been drawn out by Sutel’s insistence on carrying out studies to verify that the market is indeed competitive.” The regulator carried out an international benchmarking study and a survey of providers and other industry stakeholders on the level of competition in 2015, and will now conduct a household survey assessing the substitutability of services. http://bit.ly/1ZWZnIQ
