We have a friend on Placencia, and she told me this week that Skype worked for the first week or so but for the last two weeks it has not worked. I am hoping to get this setup in a week or two but they ran out of the cables that connect the phone to the computer!!!

Cost is 100Bze per month with 100K speed, unlimeted. Entire cost depends on what phone/system you buy. We are buying the system that has no phone, just a box with cables USB to computer, similar to a wireless hub with a short antenna, but connects with USB. You can add a regular phone to the box if you want. Without a separate antenna it costs approx 650 BZE. Smart bills you on a monthly basis. If you are out of range, there is a guy who makes separate antennas to get the signal. I heard they were not Mac compatable, but most Belizeans do not know what a MAC is anyway.
