Technology Changes Heading Toward Cuba

Google Plans to Bring Internet to Cuba, Obama Says

Cubans will finally have an alternative to their state-run ISP.

Google will be one of the first American companies to help open up Cuba to the internet, President Obama announced this morning during his historic visit. "One of the things that we'll be announcing here is that Google has a deal to start setting up more WiFi and broadband access on the island," he said in an interview with ABC News. It's still unclear what, exactly, Google plans to launch, but we've reached out for additional comment. The news comes more than a year after the US announced warmer relations with Cuba, which brought with it the possibility for American companies to do business in the country.
