Belize Telemedia provides network upgrade updates

4 Oct 2022

Belize Telemedia Limited (BTL, Digi) has provided fresh details regarding its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) rollout in its recently published 2021-22 Annual Report. The telco noted: ‘We continued to modernise our infrastructure by working diligently towards the decommissioning of our legacy copper network and rolling out modern technology to introduce new functionality, improved reliability, and operational efficiency. Consequently, we have migrated 99% of our customers to our robust FTTH network.’

The FTTH infrastructure now passes 90% of Belizean homes, after being extended to an additional 1,200 homes in Corozal Free Zone, Central Farm, Consejo Shores, Spanish Lookout, San Pedro South and Caye Caulker North. In terms of mobile upgrades, new 4G cell sites were deployed on Coco Plum Island and Manta Island in Southern Belize and the telco now operates ‘over 150 mobile sites’.

As of 31 March 2022 BTL claimed 204,000 mobile subscriptions (up from 194,000 year-on-year), 31,000 fixed broadband subscriptions (unchanged y-o-y) and 13,500 fixed voice lines (down from 15,700).
