HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) — Jorge Luis Perdomo Di-Lella, Cuban minister of communications, said that increasing internet access and technology is a priority for Cuba, where important steps are being taken in that direction.
In the Roundtable TV show, broadcasted on Tuesday, he said that the fundamental evolution strategy lies in wireless technology and the development of mobile broadband.
Mayra Arevich Marín, executive president of the Cuban Telecommunications Company (ETECSA), gave examples of progress in the country, where there are currently 670 internet access rooms, six times the number in 2013.
She highlighted that Cubans also have access to 878 Wi-Fi hotspots, distributed in all municipalities.
She pointed out that another favourable aspect is the Nauta Hogar service, through which thousands of people connect from their homes, which allows them greater privacy.
During the last few years, Cuba has been considered one of the countries with more growth in the access to internet, in comparison with its situation in earlier times.
The number of people on social networks with devices such as cell phones and electronic tablets in the country is growing at a great pace.
