Belize Cable Television Operators ask Prime Minister to reconsider internet tax

The Belize Cable Television Operators have written to the Prime Minister Dean Barrow seeking a reconsideration of the proposed tax on internet. According to the Association, the new tax will completely wipe out benefits to customers and worse, the adverse effects will result in an increase in costs of several internet supported services to Belizeans. These include communication, on-line banking, access to on-line degrees, on-line training, research, and telecommunicating. The cost of doing business in Belize would increase, placing the country at a disadvantage. It adds that the move would affect a vast network of Belizeans, ranging from the underprivileged in our society to remote residents and businesses, young entrepreneurs and farmers among others.
