Costa Rican Electricity Institute’s (ICE) Board of Directors defined that the pay TV and residential internet company Cable Vision will give its operation rights and obligations to it, in order to strengthen services offered by the cable company. It has ceded ts rights to ICE on April 10th, and will take on its operations, services and networks from September 1st.

Last year, the Republic General Comptroller (CGR) made an audit to Cable Vision and determined that the company acquired by ICE was expecting economic problems and generating losses.
