Where is Costa Rica's communications infrastructure going to be in two years?

What do people think -- will it be cheap and easy to get a cellphone in a few years? 

Where will it be possible to get high speed wireless internet? 

Will the country as a whole have the bandwidth required for 10 times as many people to be downloading and uploading videos, as they will want to?

The Big pipe under the Constanera

As I understand it, there is no reason for there not to be very High speed I-net in the southern zone. Except of course, economics.

I have been told that one of the "big pipes" is buried alongside the Costanera. You're driving alongside it every day. I've been told this by enough people that I think it may be true

So, the day will come, when there are enough people down there for it to be feasible for someone to install the infrastructure necessary for that goal to be met

Then of course many of us will be unhappy about the number of people that are there. Of course only 4 years after buying I'm already feeling like there are too many people. But I am happy about some of the added conveniences and product availability.

specifics?

Jimmy, do you have any specific facts about fibers going to C.R. or are you just talking in general about fiber cables?  By the way, I just ran across this link on a new wifi contract for communications in Costa Rica.

Telecommunications

 As for the prices being cheap,  I think it will remain the same or may rise. As for availability, that should get better if competition arrives.

High speed i-net can be brought by telephone lines, cable tv, satellite or power lines. The question is if the country, which owns a majority of these, will inject to monies to get these services going along these mediums.

The bandwidth exists in the new fibers run to along the ocean floors, but can the existing infrastructure support it? Time will tell.
