1200x-1

BLOOMBERG TECHNOLOGY by: Pia Gadkari and Aki Ito, February 14

It’s not convenient or cheap, but it’s already changing the island’s private economy.

In the past two years, Cuba has started rolling out public access to the internet. Wifi is now available through a network of hotspots– but access is expensive, and the connection can be patchy and slow. This week, Bloomberg Technology’s Pia Gadkari visits Cuba, exploring what life looks like when a country’s just starting to get online. Pia and Aki Ito hear from local entrepreneurs how the Internet is helping them grow their businesses, and discuss the potential for U.S. tech companies on the island.
