Network speed & reliability on Caye Caulker

Network speed & reliability on Caye Caulker - 11/02/15 03:40 AM

Hi Everyone!

I'm looking at taking a trip to Caye Caulker to look at some property and do some scuba diving.

My problem is that while I'm there (for a week or two), I'm going to need to continue with my day job which requires network access to do a bit of screen sharing and skype-like conferencing. I understand that network access depends not only on the provider but also the configuration and purchased options of the house/hotel where I will be staying (or using Internet access).

All that said, does this type of network access (video/audio conferencing) work reliably from Caye Caulker assuming that the house/hotel has purchased the "better than the cheapest" network option?

Thanks and all the best!
Alan

Hello Alan,
Yes, most places do have internet..
There are a few homes that have the High Speed..but very few as it comes at a premium.
You can still Facetime, email, text, watch Netfix, etc with the standard service.
You cannot Skype in Belize as it is blocked.

Skype is no longer blocked in Belize we use it all the time

The Barrier Reef bar has a great connection. Have your lunch or dinner and sign on.
If you need to bring your "cord" there are plenty of options to plug in.

Good Luck...
