Telefonica's mobile unit in Costa Rica brought LTE services to market late last week.

Movistar started offering LTE on Friday, publicising a variety of tariffs for prepaid and postpaid customers.

Postpaid LTE data plans cost 10,000 Costa Rican colones (€13.4) per month for 2 GB of data, on top of the customer's existing plan. At launch the company is offering double the amount of data for the same price, but it is not clear how long this special offer will last.

Additional data consumption is chargeable at CRC2,500 per GB.

Movistar's postpaid tariff plans start at CRC10,000 per month. Customers signing up to plans costing CRC32,000 per month or more get 2 GB of LTE for free.

Prepaid customers are able to buy a one-day 4G package for CRC800 (€1.1) that allows 250 MB of data; a weekly plan that costs CRC4,000 (€5.3) for 1 GB of data; and a 30-day package with 3 GB of data for CRC11,000 (€14.7). Those plans all come with varying amounts of included voice minutes to other Movistar customers and SMS to any operator.
