BTIA Press Release

http://www.btia.org/news_industry_detail.php?release_id=269 

Mark Espat, Minister of National Development:

“We all know that VOIP is not illegal in Belize and it should not be made illegal. Forty-nine countries in fact have legalised VOIP. What is illegal is B.T.L.’s blocking of VOIP. VOIP has emerged because of the exorbitant cost of long distance calls, in fact B.T.L. itself employs Voice Over Internet Technology and should offer this service to Belizeans at globally competitive rates. B.T.L.’s ownerships appears to be clinging to the past mainly to protect profits, but the march of technology and the tide of personal freedom that brought us from the Morris Code to the Telex to the fax machine to the email cannot and will not be halted. And so the Public Utilities Commission is oblige, I believe, if they are to remain relevant, to defend the interest of the consumers including the tourism related consumers.”

  1. Nice post. I study something more difficult on totally different blogs everyday. It is going to all the time be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and observe somewhat one thing from their store. I’d favor to make use of some with the content material on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
