BTL – VoIP Blocking Pride

At the June 2007 CANTO confernce, BTL made it very clear that they are blocking VoIP. They have proudly become the model for other Caribbean telecommunications companies to emulate. The arrogrance is so breathtaking, they even invited their VoIP blocking vendor (Bitek) to present. If you are interested in learning more about the “economic protections” employed by BTL, head over the CANTO website – – the presentations from the conference are linked from the bottom of the home page. Here are some highlights:

    BTL are tied into the present PUP party and the corruption and greed is beyond anything I have ever seen anywhere in the world. Shame on BTL and PUP.

    SecretSubway is the answer. There are currently over 5000 units in operation in Dubai alone. myBOX will completely encrypt the entire internet connection. Not only does it allow all VoIP traffic to pass but it also opens up the internet. No more censorship from oppresive ignorant governemts. You can surf the entire internet with the confedence of knowing your ISP can never monitor your traffic. Check it out at

    What does the UDP winning mean for VOIP?

  6. jg says:

    I have several business associates in Dubai who use Surfbouncer to bypass all of this stuff and also encrypt all of their traffic.

    UDP has already said they will be looking into the voip issue. I’m not sure why this site isn’t posting any updates…..

    Btl is soley a money making company with no intet of customer value
    it’s dispicable that they are doing this
    they are thinking in terms of losses
    while not taking in mind that in turn they are slowing down the progress of many businesses and individuals striving for personal growth
    —to all btl users i say dump dem–
    its been demonstrated time and agin in history that united we stand
    so all interested should tackle this problem together
    —I just hope btl’s competitors dont start doing the same–this is a mega opportunity to market customer based services,and inturn receive value from us through revenue…
