VoIP fury in Belize

30 Mar 2006

Belize Telecommunications (BTL) has sparked outrage amongst internet users by allegedly limiting or blocking the use of VoIP services such as Skype and Vonage. Technicians quoted by local press claim that BTL has installed hardware and software systems to disrupt the VoIP services. The telco was already under fire from consumers for charging high prices for relatively slow DSL access.
