Fiber Optic Sea Cable Project Advances

HAVANA TIMES, Dec. 12.- In the first months of 2009 the laying of the fiber optic sea cable that will unite Venezuela and Cuba will begin now that the technical design aspects of the project are about to conclude by Telecommunicaciones Gran Caribe, a joint Cuban-Venezuelan firm, and Alcatel Shanghai Bell, a Chinese-French Company, reported IPS. Unable to connect to existing sea cables, in part because of the US blockade, the Venezuela-Cuba effort is expected to greatly increase Cuba’s limited telephone and Internet capabilities.
