Costa Rica - Millicom


This system is no longer operational. It ran from 5/89 through 3/95. In 12/94, just before it ceased operations, it had at least 4,000 subscribers. It served San Jose and the surrounding areas with 6 Novatel switches. It was shut down after a scandal, in which it was alleged that Millicom attempted to bribe local politicians. Their network was disconnected from the public network.
