The Cabinet in Belmopan has been granting Permits or Licenses in the field of private ISP facilities. The monopoly of BTL telecommunications and the possibility of massive loss of data and services with only one legal monopoly ISP provider and no backups, has provided the impetus to start granting permits to other businesses with needs in the internet field. Most require two or three systems, to provide backup fail safe continuance of business in case the one Monopoly BTL provider goes down. Without competition in the ISP internet field, there is no back up fail safe system available to people who rely on the internet for their business. In case of a hurricane, the whole nation could be down indefinitely, even in areas that did not get hit.

Belize Communications and Securities Ltd.By rights, any permit or licensing system, should be available to all, for the same fee and with the same regulations. Otherwise you do not have a democracy!
