“Every single one of my neighbors here in Belize uses Skype.
“I use a Belize service called Stellar Links for all internet services including VOIP. The cost is BZ$100 a month.
“Others use a Tunnel and pretend they are in Prague or Melbourne.
“Both the above work perfectly.”
–Jason P., Belize
I wasn’t careful enough in my phrasing. Right, VOIP works in Belize. However, Skype does not. It’s blocked by BTL.
As you suggest, work-arounds are possible for the more IT-literate among us, allowing you to “trick” BTL into thinking you’re somewhere else and thereby enabling access to Skype.
Strictly speaking, though, again, the direct service isn’t available.
