Is there good Wifi in Belize?

WIFI in Belize

I think one of the most important things when you travel is if there is wifi in the place that you will be staying, because you want to share with the world that you are having one best time of your life. One of the most questions we get often is how is the wifi in Belize, what’s the speed? To be honest, Belize was rated the second lowest internet in the Caribbean. This due to the telephone firm, for starters, had a monopoly. Second, the government made service providers pay exorbitant fees to gain entry. In the past few years, the wifi speed has improved.

In the past ten years, the speed of internet service providers in Belize has improved drastically. Companies like BTL and Smart are always in competition, so they work to find the best for a faster speed.

Where to Find the Best WIFI in Belize

Most of Belize has WIFI and 3G/4G signal. However, there are places which boast stronger, more consistent internet like Ambergris Caye, Placencia, and Caye Caulker. Since expats have moved to the country, and Ambergris Caye in particular, the service has improved to meet demand. Ambergris Caye and many areas of the country (always expanding the reach) have fiber optics.
