If responses to your emails to Belize are slow it might be because the BTL Internet service has been very sketchy for the past day or so.

I'm paying $500.00US plus tax for two 1Mb connections and I'm barely able to browse at dial-up speeds. It's very intermittent. I've called BTL about 7 times today and they're "looking into it."

I have to agree. It appears that BTL has been fiddling with their filtering software lately. I've found a new speedtest that everyone should try to verify they are getting the broadband performance they are paying for. It also tests your VoIP capability...

Just click on the START button...

You should get at least 75% of your stated BTL traffic level.

It's still dreadful. Are these people really incompetent or are they working on some new scam to trick the public?

Here is another free speed test you can use (unless the block it).

Nothing worse than slow internet access.

Was told that the PUC is having a press conference on Monday about VOIP.

Scuttlebutt is we'll be happier with PUC decision than BTL will be, but it doesn't sound like a whole lot more happiness. And laws too vague to stop BTL from humbugging voip in the interim and in the process, slowing down everyones speed. Which sits well with BTL,who ring in more dough from dial up customers. Aye!
