Internet browsing of the inhabitants of this province of eastern Cuba is increasingly moving towards mobile phones and in particular, through the data network.
Las Tunas, Cuba.- At the end of last year, the number of active cell lines in the territory has already exceeded 225,000 and more than a third of the local population has accounts with access to international email; while 14 radio base stations of the provincial capital already have 4G technology for Internet browsing.
Since 2020, the statistics of the Cuban Telecommunications Company (Etecsa) are more in tune with the parameters measured by international organizations. Thus, it is possible to know now that 29.22 percent of Las Tunas inhabitants have personalized access to broadband Internet. That means that, on average, 20 thousand 458 people have that possibility from their homes.
Las Tunas was the second province in the amount of investment made in its telecommunications infrastructure, said Carlos Martínez Ávila, head of the Network's Development and Operations Department in the Etecsa Territorial Division. All despite the harsh working conditions imposed by the resurgence of the US economic blockade, reflected in the fact that there were months, such as September, in which they barely had 40 percent of the usual fuel.
