What kind of charges do you who live on AC have to pay to hook into the Internet?
What type of restrictions do you have?
Is there any competition between servers or are you slaves to what you can get?

There is a very fine line between a hobby and mental illness

Belize Telecommunications Limited (BTL) is the only server in Belize.

If you want to hook a phone up and you are not Belizean....they are asking for $1000 BZ as a deposit. You will also need to pay $40 BZ a month for full internet service....this gives you 10 hours.....after that it is $4.00 bz per hour used.

Can you give the scoop on this for CC?
Also a progress report on CC for utilities, rebuilding, clean-up etc?

JUDE....these rates are Country wide. BTL is the ONLY server. Dont know about CC.....have not been there or heard....I'm sure they are moving along just like SP....but cant give you a first hand account...will have to let someone else do that.

I'm not sure on the time period....either 6months to a year....BTL has a website....maybe you can find it there if nobody else can answer.
