Broadband and Telecommunications in Belize

Belize was among the first Latin American countries to privatise its national telecom company in 1988, but gave the incumbent, Belize Telecommunications Ltd (BTL), a 15-year monopoly concession until end-2002 for all fixed-line and mobile phone services. Now, despite theoretical liberalisation, BTL still holds a de facto monopoly. International Telecommunications (Intelco) became BTL’s first competitor in October 2003, but was bankrupt by November 2004. A third company now has the task of breaking BTL’s monopoly: SpeedNet Communications (SpeedNet), which began to build a CDMA2000 1X network in September 2004.


Recommended Market Reports on Belize:

Belize Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Report
Belize is one the smaller countries in the region, with fewer than 350,000 inhabitants. It is the only English-speaking nation in Central America, having closer affinities with the Caribbean region than with its immediate neighbours. The Belizean telecom market was officially liberalised in 2003, yet the incumbent, Belize Telemedia Limited, continues to hold a monopoly in fixed-line services and is the dominant provider of mobile and broadband services.
