B.T.L. is Expanding Services, but even to Cable TV?

Rochus Schreiber

With the upgrade of its infrastructure and network, B.T.L. is also looking at becoming a cable service provider. Cable Television is a system that will allow for television programmes to be transmitted to the sets of subscribers by cable rather than by a broadcast signal. That industry is not available in Belize; but the company is engaged in fibre to home connection across the country.


Rochus Schreiber, C.E.O., B.T.L.

“We see a transformation in the industry. Before if you were a customer in Belize and you wanted to have cable or you wanted to have internet from a cable company, you couldn’t buy alone just the internet; you have to buy also the cable subscription. Many of our cable companies are offering internet alone without the cable subscription; just like we are offering internet whether on a fixed line or the mobile devices with ever greater speeds and on the mobile with every greater amount of data that is available to the customer on the go. So it is not what we want, it’s what the customers want, what they see elsewhere and it is their choice to decide how they will sent their money and their time to get information,  education, entertainment and communications with people at work, their loved ones in other countries. So all of these directions are open and we are exploring them and we continue to explore them to meet our customers’ needs.”



“You didn’t answer my question though.  Is it your ambition or the corporate ambition of B.T.L. to be the only cable going into the home of consumers offering the myriad of services that are available through fibre optic space?”


Rochus Schreiber

“Our ambition is to offer all possible services that our customers are asking for, so it doesn’t stop a quadruple threat or a triple threat; there are other things that customers need. They need education, they need remote worthy; so it might be quadruple threat, octuple threat; we can go into as many as the customers need.”
