I had a very disappointing experience with trying to hook up with BTL. I paid the price, but never did actually get it going. I had a old laptop, so that my have been part of the problem. I recall for 8 hrs a month, it cost, I believe $20US. I don't recall how much an hour after 8 hrs. I have a feeling that Sandshaker will be getting with ya for more detail. I'll check back. I want ta see what she says about BTL. It'll be good, I promise.She just loves BTL. HEE HEE


Gone fishing!!

Bill and Sandshaker thanks for the rate information. I use about 200 hours per month in the U.S. so if I lived full time in AC my monthly internet bill with BTL would be around $400. That is outrageous-- what a rip off. If BTL offered a DSL line I would hate to think what they would charge for it.
There is really no excuse for BTL to charge $2 an hour for time over eight hours other than they have a monolopy. I think I would look into a personal satalite system if I lived there.

Internet rates are so high in Belize due to BTL being the only service for Telephone and internet.:C However, alternatives may be coming but from what I have read, it will be only in the Free Trade Zone of Corozal.
Keep in fingers crossed for the prospect of The Freedom of Internet Choice!

Marvel, thanks for the follow up on the BTL mess. I would place my bet on the money man getting full control of BTL and if not he will be well paid for his stock.########### I looked over the entire web site you recommended and was shocked about the BUS AMBUSH full of people with one of the bad guys getting what he deserved.
