For those that choose to go rural, Digi AirNet is an option for you to consider. The new product gives rural customers access to Internet and Fixed Voice services using the DigiCell mobile network. With Digi AirNet customers receive an amount of data that can be used to browse the internet, stream movies, and download videos. When the data allowance is depleted, browsing speed throttles down to a slower speed.

Admittedly, the beauty of working from Belize is tied to what you can do outside of the working hours. A morning swim in the sea, a hike through the jungle as your daily workout or lunch from the local market. All of these are possible from your new location. So, quite simply we encourage you to take them and redefine your break. Because life is all about balance.
