Cuba and Technology

Internet access is difficult, but is available. Only recently, home access is a reality, but because of its cost, out of the reach of most people. Crowds gather outside of public wi-fi hot spots to access the internet (CNN, 2017).

Cisco will set up a computer technology academy.

Other tech companies that are paving the way include:

Google, AT&T, Paypal and Western Union
