Screw the Belizeans, make sure the tourists have better internet first. Our friends in Toledo run an orphanage and BTL just shut their internet down and told them tough maybe in 2 years we will get you service!! Great company!

Belize Telemedia Limited to debut DIGINET in San Pedro Town

Belize Telemedia Limited (BTL) CEO Rochus Schreiber and his team paid a visit to La Isla Bonita on Friday, June 23rd. While on the island, they announced that San Pedro will be the first municipality to experience DIGINET, a new service which will offer superfast fiber-based internet up to 100mbps for homes and businesses. The island is expected to be fully connected to this upcoming service by August 2017.

Rochus and his team made an official visit to Mayor Daniel Guerrero, to declared that the service will be of great benefit to the island. According to Guerrero, the island’s rapid growth has required an upgrade in its telecommunications network. According to Rochus, San Pedro Town will be the first to experience the new service due to the fact that it is the top tourism destination in Belize. The advantage of a really fast and reliable internet connection will greatly benefit day to day business.


San Pedro To Have Fastest Internet In Belize
San Pedro, Ambergris Caye will boast the fastest internet in the country, being the first to make use of the DIGINET service that promises to offer Superfast Fiber-based Internet up to 130Mbps for home or business. Belize Telemedia Limited has already sent out notices to its customers advising them that as of September 1, 2017, the company will be turning down the existing High Speed Internet service in San Pedro as it transitions to the new DigiNet Fiber product that will be launched on August 1, 2017. The company is advising customers to make the transition before the latter service is taken down to avoid losing any internet service.
