How much does internet service cost in Belize? Much of the information I am finding online is outdated, and I can't get the information off of BTL's site. Also, is there any option on AC for cable internet?

Thanks!

I pay $197BZ per month for 512K service but I am on a plan which brings down the cost a bit. There are no real benefits of using cable as they funnel through BTL anyway (which sometimes causes bandwidth issues). The only difference is the deposit required and possibly installation fees, can't tell you those as it's been a long time since I was hooked up.

Thanks Simon!

Do you know if that is the fastest speed available?

Thanks!

1Mb is the fastest that I know of unless you go for a leased line which would be a fortune.

Thanks Simon,

Do you know the cost of the 1 Mb speed? And I assume that is download, now upload speed?

Thanks!

I think I pay $330 Bz per month for 1MB
and $550 for 2 MB (somewhere in that region.)

I don't think we can get faster than 2mb on the island - although I could be wrong.

Wow... I knew it was expensive, but those numbers are a little difficult to adjust to! I think I'll be going for the 512 option, though the speed will also be hard to adjust to!

Be thankful we even have Broadband. It was only a few years back we had dialup at best.
