Digital ‘vaccine passports’ continue to create headlines worldwide, meant to ensure the safe recovery of international travel post-pandemic. Besides such, the concept paves the way for a closer relationship between technology and travel in the near future, which has been cemented during COVID-19. After all—for many of us—the past 12 months have been lived in a state of suspended animation as restrictions limited our dreams and plans to online-only. However, some took the restrictions—virtual school and remote work—as an opportunity to pick up and go somewhere else. With a good internet connection, a Zoom conference call can happen just as easily on a boat or in the back of a camper as it can in a living room. While a great share of the global population went online and stayed connected at the same time, you can too in Belize with services like Digi.

In a recent Ericsson poll, as many as 9 in 10 respondents claimed to have increased their existing online activities, and 1 in 5 had started new online habits such as using e-learning platforms and video conferencing services. Not to mention, the increased need to stay informed about the pandemic, keep up with studies online, and maintain work life remotely, all while staying in touch with family and friends during strict social distancing rules. So if one were to retreat to rural comforts in Belize, why should they compromise that?

Whether camping out in a cabin or immersing yourself in culture at a traditional village, Digi launched Digi AirNet for customers living in rural Belize. This product gives customers access to fixed voice services and blazing internet speeds up to 30Mbps powered by the LTE network.


Online population aged 15–79 (69) years old within 31 countries (Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, the UK, and the US)

“With so many people working remotely now anyway, it’s perfectly achievable – you can still do your job, but from the luxury of a Caribbean beach. Direct flights to many of the islands mean you’re never far from home, and most hotels have excellent Wi-Fi.”

After all, portable WiFi access tops the list, especially given the legions of workers that have transitioned to working remotely during the pandemic. In Belize, Digi customers can enjoy 4GLTE Advanced Network in Central America. For those that work or study remotely, they travel for a number of reasons; whether work-life balance, to be near family and friends, or in a place that inspires them in their profession.
