Default Cuba Improving Internet Access with More Hotspots, Lower Fees

NYTimes is reporting that Cuba plans to expand online access for its citizens by rolling out a few dozen hotspots around the island and lowering the access fees. The overall plan is to have slow broadband to half of Cuban homes by 2020. For some reason, I'm thinking of the Tropico game now. It is a source of frustration for young people, a growing number of whom — especially in Havana — own a smartphone that they cannot use to get online. The city's one hot spot — at the workshop of the artist Kcho — is constantly packed. "Young people don't talk about politics," said Hector, 25, an information systems manager in Santiago de Cuba, the country's second-largest city. "What they are most worried about is being able to connect to the Internet." _fees/
