Costarica Finca was talking about a personal phone line that could be difficult to get from the ICE.
Here is what happen with me.
/ years ago I got a property in San Ramon de Alajuela, on the main Road with all the phone lines passing in front of it.
The ICE did not want to give a line saying that none where available for personal, I spend many time inside the gerant office disputing the problem, probably for 6 months, about twice a week.It was not possible until one day somebody there in the discussion said the magic word. If only you where a business it say.
As I have the property in a SA, I said but I do I have an SA. with a business name.
They said OK no problem then we are going to give you 10 lines, you need to install a commercial box for 10 lines do the tubing to our specification with a independent ground I did it my self cost me $150.00, called them for inspection, they accepted, and ask me how many lines I wanted, I said lets start with one and see how that goes, and they did.
For a few years they where calling me every 6 month saying you still have 9 lines open, and my response was business is bad will see later. Then they stop calling. I am still on one line and only pay for one.
And never given a cents for mordita.
