You know, BTL has taken a bashing over the years on this forum, but they really also deserve credit where credit is due. Just got this in the mail:

"BTL Doubles the Speed for DSL Customers

Monday May 3rd , 2004 - Belize Telecommunications Limited today announced that the
Company has doubled the speed for all its existing DSL High Speed Internet customers.
BTL has automatically provided customers with twice their bandwidth for the same
monthly access fee they were originally paying.

Customers will be able to continue enjoying an “always on” connection available 24
hours per day with much higher download speeds of up to 128K, 256K, 512K and now,
1Mb. The Company will also continue to expand the DSL service within the next few
months, to make it accessible to more customers throughout the country."

I think it's a wonderful thing...completely out of the blue.....and I have to say that their DSL support has been great...we've had outages on Ambergris Caye but the guys at BTL have been quick to fix the problems even on weekend nights.

What a prat!! -DSL sucks -we have not been able to sign up into hotmail for seven days-at the moment it is an unmitigated disaster,and does not look like it is getting any better in the foreseeable future-do not trust Tottenham Hotspur supportes(for you uninitiated members he supports a very poor football team)

My DSL works perfectly, and has been continuously providing high-speed service. Congrats to BTL!

I'll trade a connection of 26.4 with anyone who has DSL. (oh and you get the "disconnects" for absolutely free) Any bidders???? Going once, going twice .... drats, looks like I'm stuck with it.

Jesse...mine has been working perfectly tooo....but that is because I don't use Hotmail email. Fact is, ol' Pedro is right...Hotmail and MSN users are, at the present time, screwed. I've called BTL about 18 times in the past 6 days about the problem, no joy. It's every single DSL subscriber who uses Hotmail that is affected. I get to speak to a really "high up" person tomorrow! Let's see if he can fix it.
