- Hi Fred,
No problem. From the Amnet home page; www.amnet.co.cr click on "servicios",
then then next page click on "cable modem", then the next page click on
"cobertura" and you'll see the map!
ADSL is supplied by ICE. You have to call them and give them the phone
number you want to have service connected to, then they will tell you yes
or no. If the answer is no, you could ask if the service will be available
in the future. ICE is in the process of upgrading their PBXs, so it my just
be a matter of waiting. On the other hand, if it is a radio phone, then you
will never get ADSL and if you are more than 2km from the exchange you
won't be able to get it later.
I realize the above is not very useful if you are looking for a
neighborhood that has ADSL service.
Ament and CableTica provide Cable Modem. You have to subscribe to their
Cable TV service first.
The coverage area for Amnet can be found here:
For CableTica: "Si desea más información o consultar sobre las zonas
disponibles del servicio de una o dos vías, comuníquese con nosotros al
210-1450, 210-1473 ó al 210-1499, Fax: 296-3884, e-mail:
ventas@.... También puede visitarnos en nuestras oficinas
ubicadas en Sabana Oeste, frente al Estadio Nacional, contiguo a Canal 7,
oficina de Ventas de Cable Tica."
Basically, call them to find out if the area you are interested has coverage.
Hope this helps.
