BTL ANNOUNCES START OF 'UNREGISTERED ROAMING' SERVICE
Belize Telecommunications Limited announced yesterday the start of an 'unregistered roaming' service. The new service allows a visitor to Belize to use their mobile phones, even though those phones are not registered and do not use the same technology as BTL. An attempt to use an unregistered phone will connect the caller to a voice recording that will offer the choice of a collect or credit card call. When a choice is made, a live operator comes on line and handles the call. The new service is intended to make it easier for tourists and traveling business people to call home.
