CUBA PLANS TO EXPAND INTERNET ACCESS

8C63EAD2-A39F-4BC6-A97E-1AE088AFD314_w640_r1_s_cx0_cy6_cw0The Cuban government has announced plans to expand Internet access by introducing Wi-Fi hotspots across the country and reducing the cost that Cubans pay to get online.

The move was announced last week in the Juventud Rebelde newspaper. The Cuban government had pledged to increase Internet access as part of talks aimed at normalizing relations with the United States.

A spokesman for Cuba’s state communications company told the newspaper that 35 government computer centers will have Wi-Fi starting next month. He also said the price for one hour of Internet access will drop to $2, less than half the normal cost. The cost is still unaffordable for most Cubans.
