Cuba up to 70,000 home internet connections

Wednesday 23 January 2019 | 15:42 CET | News
Just over 70,000 Cubans have signed up to one of the Nauta Hogar home internet connections offered by state-owned telecommunications operator Etecsa in the 22 months since the service was launched, reports news site Periodico Cubano. The residential internet service was launched in parts of Havana back in March 2017 and just 70,418 users have since subscribed to the service, the vast majority (95%) connecting via the cheapest 1Mbps download package, said the report. The plan comes with 30 hours of internet for USD 15 a month, close to half an average monthly salary.
