A total of 4,434 Costa Rican schools are connected to Internet. 212 of these are connected by optical fiber, which increases the quality of navigation.
In addition, by 2017, 130 other schools are expected to have this technology, which aims to improve the educational experience of the student population.
On Friday, the Ministry of Public Education (MEP) boasted about the results of the investment of more than 800 million colones, which enables faster Internet connection.
