The Reporter published an article, Oct. 3rd., that said, many internet users in Belize are using the pre-paid debit card, or credit card system for international phone calls via the internet. The software is called "net phone". International calls are made to any phone you wish. The calls range from a low price of .60 USA per minute compared to the BTL price of $2 USA per minute. BTL says they cannot monitor it and are aware.
In Belize, the average unlimited internet user wishing to operate any kind of on-line business through the week, or operate a web page server, or any other kind of full time unlimited access to the internet hookup for commercial purposes has to pay around $1600 Bz or $800 USA per month minimum, compared to $25 USA unlimited use in Panama, or $19 unlimited internet use in the USA.
$19 unlimited internet use in USA... not to mention that FREE internet access is now wide spread...for anyone with access to local numbers! I am appalled at the costs there for internet access.
