ETECSA has expanded cell coverage and installed a public WiFi spot in in Sancti Spíritus. Unfortunately, they are still focused on SMS and phone calls and the WiFi backhaul is 2 mbps, which they say can be shared by 90 simultaneous users -- unusable.
I understand that this is a short term, interim step, but it is a drop in the bucket. I hope they experiment with other short-term technologies while planning long-term policy and technology.
My dial-up era Web site, som.csudh.edu/fac/lpress, was deemed "not mobile friendly" by Google because the text was too small to read, the links too close together and "Mobile viewport" was not set.
It displayed a simulated image of my home page, but, as you see below, the acual home page has relatively large, easily readable text and I have no trouble clicking on the links.
As of today, it still comes up number 1 when I search for my name on a cell phone.

Doug tracks the global Internet and keeps a close eye on Cuban connectivity -- my guess is that there will be a lot of discussion of Cuba at this conference.
Please do relate what you discover (and present) -- whatever you learn about opportunities for Cubans.
In the future, that cable may play a role in Cuban connectivity.

Rosewell Park Cancer Institute will work Cuba's Center for Molecular Immunology to develop a lung cancer vaccine and bring it to clinial trials and Infor has found Cuban partners to resell its software in Cuba.
We have heard a lot about opportunities for US companies, like Infor, to sell goods and services in Cuba, but I am more intersted in opportunities for Cubans to create things for the US and the rest of the world, like cancer vaccines.
