Cuba Rolls Out Mobile Internet to Select Users
Communist-run Cuba is initially rolling out mobile internet to select users in its effort to develop the country’s connectivity.
The program, which may provide nationwide mobile internet by the year’s end, prioritized journalists at state-run news outlets. President Miguel Diaz-Canel said that the connectivity provided by the country’s telecoms monopoly should boost the economy and help citizens defend their revolution.
However, analysts pointed out that broader web access will ultimately weaken the government’s control on information received by Cubans in the one-party island state that has a monopoly on the media.
