Cuba is making a monumental move by granting citizens full internet access on mobile phones beginning Thursday (December 06).
This makes Cuba one of the last nations to do so.
The Associated Press was the first to break news, and reports that Cuban state telecom monopoly (mobile service company) will begin contracting 3G services for the first time.
Again, this is such a monumental move for the nation, that the announcement had to be televised.
Cuban citizens have had access only to state-run email accounts on their phones until now.
The nation's internet has been expanding rapidly. Since 2017, Cuba authorized home internet and hundreds of public WiFi connection points in parks and plaza across the country.
A huge congratulations to the people of Cuba who now have the opportunity to remain connected with loved ones and enjoy social media.
