How well wired is Belize ? What is the internet back bone like and what is the last mile connection like?

This kinda service cost me 100us a month.
DSL and I might be considered at the end of the line.
Its fairly consistent speed wise but of course it all runs on electricity and that goes out 5 or 6 times a week.

We've had power outages on the North part of the island every day this week, but it been a bad weather week.
Its been out twice today already and its only 10 am but were having a storm.
The low voltage stuff is what hurts. I use APC battery backup but they only protect the computer from low voltage by shutting down.
refrigerators and wellpumps suffer a lot.
Electricity truly might be a little better on the south end of the island where Jesse is.
