    No one uses 128k anymore, BTL does not even offer it, what is he talking about.  We need them to offer more bandwidth 1MB minimum to 20 MB max to start.

    For education we need more careers to be offered in Belize so we dont have to go abroad.  We need course same as offered in the USA, Canada and UK.

    Tourisim is our strongest industry but we also need to focus on other fields such as Doctors, IT, Marketing, Journalism, Architects, etc.

    agree with you. I currently have 28MB speed. if I ever go in Belize i can just imagine the internet so slow. 

    and yes Belize needs to focus on more careers. more courses.

    The government should also help support UNIBAM along with it's president to protect the rights of all those who are afraid to reveal their sexual orientation.

    For those with UNIBAM, you don't need to get sexually aggresive in public with your sexual orientation. That is your private life. Lets keep private matters private for the sake of the children. It is the heterosexuals and the children that keeps the world going. They are the only ones that can ensure the future. You are just the present.
