    I’m shocked you have Belize listed as one of the top places to telecommute from. Belize has some of the worst internet speeds in the world, coupled with the highest prices. And, until just recently, didn’t even allow Skype (who knows if the government owned internet company will change its mind on that one). I’ve lived in Belize for almost three years, and while there’s a lot of wonderful things about it, the internet most definitely is not one of them.

    In April of this year, BTL opened up all skype/voip/vpn blocks they had on the network resulting in hugely increased speeds. This in addition to a couple speed doubling and price reduction efforts have left Belize in a much better spot than a year ago. You might find the experience much better these days.
