Cuba: New fibre optics, but government limits bandwidth

Posted by Rick C. Hodgin

Chicago (IL) - Cuba will be receiving a new fibre optics cable run over from Venezuela in 2010. It will greatly increase the country's Internet bandwidth potential; however, it appears now the government is not going to free up that bandwidth but will, instead, keep its tight controls over Internet access in Cuba.


Cuba currently has about 11.4 million people, with only about 1.4 million online connected to the Internet.
