Internet cable from Cuba to Jamaica comes online
HAVANA (AP) -- A company that monitors global Internet traffic says another branch of the Venezuela-to-Cuba undersea fiber-optic cable has come online, connecting the island to nearby Jamaica.
Internet analysis firm Renesys says it detected the new traffic between Cuban state telecom monopoly Etecsa and Cable & Wireless Jamaica beginning May 13.
Renesys analyst Doug Madory announced the new connection in a post on the company's blog Monday.
