Russell Shaw has a pretty damning post today on what sounds like serious VoIP-blocking being done by Belize Telecommunications Limited, the local telco in Belize.

Well, on Wednesday, the Belize PUC will hold a hearing on the matter. Expect to hear from some very influential people, such as Andrew Godoy, director of the Belize Tourism Industry Association. “The Board is appalled by the actions of BTL,” Godoy tells the San Pedro, Belize Sun. “We have heard from many of our constituents and this is negatively impacting their business.”
