No kidding. 10 years ago we were on fixed cell and could only get 4800 baud.

What about satellite? Anyone using it? Costs? Internet is crucial to our financial existence and it's got to be fast and we need Skype for making global calls. I have a vague memory of the local company blocking Skype and it only works if you have satellite. Is that true?

If you use the search function near the top of this thread and enter satellite or Skype there are many threads that cover the subject in detail.

We have 2 MB here at Corozal Bay Resort. It is supplied by B.T.L.
Cost per month: BZ$660. or US$330.
Very expensive but it works great.

Thanks for all the responses!

How much does satellite internet cost, is it very different?

Thanks!

I think initial set up would be around $5,000 Bz then about $80 US per month for service.

We made the jump from paying $129 at coral cable to pahing about $350 at BTL for 1 mb and while it is costly it is totally worth it.

I have learned not to think in terms of comparing (too much) what we had in Canada or how fast the net is in Mexico compared to here. The $19.95 for just over 1 mb a month quest commercials still sting sometimes ha ha.
