Google first company to host content in Cuba

Google has become the first Internet company to launch in Cuba, as its servers went live in the country today. Cuba still has the lowest level of Internet connectivity in the Western hemisphere, as Internet can often only be accessed through one of the 240 public access wi-fi spots on the island. Although Google’s deal will not solve the problem of connectivity, those who are connected ‘can expect to see an improvement in terms of quality of service and reduced latency for cached content‘.
