Highly anticipated mobile internet service has been launched for the very first time in Cuba on Thursday.
Prices were considered high in a country where the average monthly wage is approximately 20 U.S. dollars.
Cuba has a total of 11.2 million inhabitants and 5.
Up to now, average Cubans could only access the internet through 1,200 Wi-Fi hotspots set up in public places and 670 Etecsa-run navigation rooms.
Due to a lack of infrastructure, only some 60,000 Cubans have home internet access via their telephone land lines.
According to Cuban Minister of Communications Jorge Luis Perdomo, the government aims to boost internet access through wireless technologies, believing that "the internet is a very useful tool that must be made available to everyone."
