Towers can be different color

Those cell telephone towers are red and white because that is a rule to help pilots of aircraft.

But there are 35 cantons in Costa Rica that are not near enough to airports for the rule to be in effect.

That means the local municipalities can choose to paint the towers a different color, said the Superintendencia de Telecomunicaciones.

The towers have been controversial particularly because the new, private telecom companies had to put up their own.
