Wednesday 20 March 2019 | 11:23 CET | News
The contentious-administrative and civil chamber of Costa Rica's treasury cassation court has definitively annulled a fine of CRC 2.16 billion (around USD 3.5 million) imposed by the Superintendency of Telecommunications (Sutel) on state-owned company ICE for monopolistic and anticompetitive practices in the mobile telephony market between November and December 2011, and October and November 2012. The fine was handed down in 2015 after Telefonica complained that ICE's "Extreme Chip" prepay promotion could not be replicated by rival operators.
