The postal service, Correos de Costa Rica, is expanding its market and will offer cell telephone services.
The government agency announced an agreement Wednesday with the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad and Grupo Tecnológico GAMA TAU.
The agreement means that the postal service will offer pre-paid cell telephones and cell phone recharging at all of its branches. The agency has 97 branches.
The state-owned electrical institute, now a broad telecommunications company, will soon face competition for the first time.
