Havana, Sep 24 (ACN) The Cuban Ministry of Communications (MICOM) has so far granted 402 licenses for private data networks of natural persons, as established by its resolutions 98 and 99, Pablo Julio Pla, director of communications of that ministry reported today in Havana.
In a press release, the official said that the process of updating licenses, scheduled from July 29 to September 29, has been coupled with the creation of capacity in Timored, network of the Joven Club de Computacion y Electronica (" Community Computer Club"), apart from using infrastructure of other entities of MICOM to give access through Wifi to those networks.
According to Jose Carlos Cruz, director of IT of these clubs, the conditions have been established for the testing in 12 sites in Havana, while the rest of the territories are working to be carried out in 22 facilities in 10 other provinces.
The officials explained that the first step in the process is to create an account from any club, and then connect to the Captive Portal and certify this access account.
Those who do so on the Timored network can access each of the services in these facilities, including the cultural product Mochila, the collaborative encyclopedia Ecured and the video game portal Ludox.
During the tests, technical issues such as link speed or signal quality are assessed, and although this process is now free when completed, it will be billed, although the amount will be affordable, the executives said.
Dayron Rodriguez, a private network manager of La Lisa municipality, said that from the start the communication and support of the specialists of the aforementioned clubs has been crucial for the formation of links and the configuration of services.
MICOM resolutions 98 and 99 enable services and operations related to the use of private data networks, which used to be carried out without legal support in all provinces, especially in Havana.
