Cuba Accuses US of Destabilizing the Country, with the Internet

Friday, March 19, 2010

A recent ruling that allows U.S. companies to provide Internet services Cuba, despite the embargo. But Cuban officials say this is a direct threat to the Cuban leadership, claiming that the United States aims to "use these services as a tool of subversion and destabilization." 

The BBC's Michael Voss has been following the story and he joins The Takeaway from Havana, Cuba.

When I was in Cuba less than two weeks ago, Internet access cost $3.00 for thirty minutes, or $6.00 per hour, not $8.00 as Michael Voss states.

I spent a month in Cuba as part of my work directing an Internet-based Yahoo news group on Cuba.

Thank.
