San Pedro (and possibly all Belize) was without Internet or email service from around 9:30pm 29th Aug 2001 to 8:00am 30th August. Service then came up for 5 mins and went down again for about 1 hour. Service is VERY poor right now, so please bear with hotels etc. if they are slow to answer your email.

BTL is killing us for the last 24 hours. Email is on and off. As as previously mentioned, many folks can't get on the Internet at all.

hopefully this will be fixed very soon....

Speaking of which.... When is BTLs monopoly time over??? Is there any hope for anything better at that time?

You might be interested in the article that was in the reporter today stating that a BTL employee or exeutive leaked that BTL has to be notified in writing by Dec. 29, 2001 (1 year before contract up) by the GOB. So far that has not happened, just a lot of verbal statements.

If they are not notified in writing by the pertinent Minister and by the above date, the monopoly is renewed for a further 5 years.

This could be a disaster for Belize.
