Cuba is Testing Underwater Internet Cable

Tamaño letra:
HAVANA, Cuba, Jan 24 (ACN) Cuba’s Communications Company ETCSA announced that its telecommunications system using an optic fiber cable that links the island to Venezuelan and Jamaica  has been active since August 2012.

The connection has initially been used for international telephone traffic, the company explained.

Quality tests on internet traffic through the cable began on January 10, with real traffic from and to Cuba in order to normalize this communication system.

Once the experimental stage concludes, the operations of the underwater cable would not imply yet the multiplication of possibilities to access the internet, since investment would have to be done in the internal telecommunication infrastructure and increase hard currency resources to pay for the Internet traffic.

Only through these actions the progressive development of the service being offered by ETECSA can be reached, reads an article on Granma newspaper.
