SPHS; the first in Belize to get free Diginet High Speed Service
Thursday, September 7th, 2017
On Wednesday September 6th, a ceremony was held at the San Pedro High School (SPHS), organized by Belize Telemedia Limited (BTL). With the aim to officially launch the Diginet program at the school, SPHS becomes the first secondary institution to receive this program across the country. Attending the ceremony were BTL staff, San Pedro Town council members and the media, along with school staff and students.
Diginet is a program that was created by the Belize Telemedia company (BTL) along with Huawei Marine, to provide high speed internet and full Fiber Optic broadband. It is the most reliable, and affordable broadband in Belize. This program will be granted free to all secondary institutions across the country.
In the ceremony, the Chief Executive Office of BTL Rochus Schreiber said, “I want to give a special thanks to the principal of SPHS for allowing us to launch our program with them, also to Mayor Daniel Guerrero for always helping the BTL family when it comes to projects regarding the island.” The principal of SPHS Emil Vasquez further commented, “We are happy and excited with this new internet program that has been granted to the school, and hope that the students take advantage of it in a positive way.”
With the new internet program, the high school internet speed will upgrade from 8MB to 60MB. The Diginet is not in efficient use as yet, as the principal, along with the school committee will decide how it will be offered to the students.
