From a contented (today) BTL customer
Been two days now -- BTL net is working great!! No more spam (will -- just
a little) -- so they got the spam filter working!!

No more virus attacks -- they got that filter working to.

BTL mail acocunts are working fast -- real fast -- with no screw-ups!!

Right now I am downloading a great jpg file -- astronomy -- from:

2.3 megs -- I am 4/5ths through it -- and "average" download is 5700

Normal "was"3800!!

BTL is doing a great job -- and I hope they keep this up!!

Yes, Much better! 46kbps as I speak. And new cheaper rates!!!

If it's not good enough, get your new Starband 480 at Satieo Belize:)

My host, not an employee.

actually, it came from a long time btl user who has had more than his share of troubles in the past, just commenting on the sudden marked improvement the last couple days...

And I thought my service was slow… 500kbps down and 128kbps up. Will soon be switching to the new provider in town, unlimited bandwidth. A friend of mine has it, 4.3MB down and 1.1MB up, just amazing…

i'm suddenly getting TONS less junk email. every since my friend above said btl was behaving better. i think their virus and spam catchers are catching them going OUT too, thus lessening the load on my mailwasher....

a huge percentage of my email comes from Belize, and its weird to suddenly start getting so much less spam. i get approx 50,000 spams/viruses a week. once when i signed onto a spam/virus removal service, suddenly my email stopped. they were getting so much spam from my mail server ip they thought my ip was a spam service and they had blocked it. i said, no, thats my email. get after it!!!!

had the same email address since 1996, and the increase over time is of course exponential, not arithmatic...
