Cuba to Continue Internet Access Limits
A new fiber optic cable running from Venezuela to Cuba is scheduled to go online in 2010 and is expected to “dramatically” increase the level of Cuba’s connectivity. However, a top official said that this will not necessarily change the policy of restricting Internet access to the general public nor make it any cheaper.
"We believe that the most responsible policy is to privilege collective access" to the Internet, said Boris Moreno, deputy minister of computer science and communication. Nevertheless, there is a desire for "larger number of citizens to have Internet access," technical and economic conditions allowing, Moreno told the daily Juventud Rebelde.
