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.
