Google is expanding wifi and broadband internet in Cuba




Google has reached an agreement with the Cuban government to develop infrastructure for WiFi and broadband access on the island. That President Obama hinted during his visit to Cuba.

President Obama told ABC the Internet one of the areas that are going to change in Cuba. “Internet access will give the Cuban people more information and allows them more to get a vote,” said the president. Details on the role Google will play’re not there yet. Google does not respond to questions from US media about this.

Less than 5 percent of Cubans have access to the internet. Google is already over the Internet to bring the island, but the Communist Party held the boat far off. Last July Google filed according to the Miami Herald a proposal to the Cubans to improve the Internet quickly and cheaply through include WiFi.

The Havana Times reported then that the Communist Party thanked for installing free Wi-Fi access. “Some parties want to give us free internet but they do not have to communicate the Cuban people. Their goal is to invade our country and carry out ideological work to conquer us,” was the second man of the party, Jose Ramon Machado Ventura said.
