As you may have read from a previous post, we are looking at purchasing a condo on AC. One of the requirements I have is a need for high speed internet. I currently pay $199 a month here in the states for 6Mbps downstream and 1Mbps upstream. Since the internet so intregal to my work and life, I pay a premium for the fastest connection I can get.

I'll likely need to do the same for my condo and assume that prices are going to be higher there than here. My real question is, what is the highest speed internet that I can get in SP. Latency must be very low so satellite based services are out of the question, though wireless services are an option.

I understand that there are three (Coral, BTL and SMART) non-satellite offerings on SP, but cannot find any details on technology, speed or cost of the offerings. If I'm missing something or if someone can point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

To give you an idea of mainland speed my friends here have the fastest connection going and it rarely gets up to the speed that they are paying for. Out on the cayes I found the service to be intermittent at best but that could have been a problem with the wiring where I was. Perhaps others can weigh in here?

Are those BTL rates in Belize or US dollars?

Belize dollars as they should be quoted in.

Do you know how fast middle speed at Coral is? Do you know what their fastest is? I guess I can check into it when I'm there. I'm just surprised that I can't find a webstie for them.
