The Cuban Internet
By Dane Carlson on November 12, 2012 in Ideas
Only about 2% of Cubans can get online (although that could change thanks to the recent arrival of a fibre-optic cable from compañero Chávez in Venezuela), but it doesn’t matter. You don’t need the internet to get Radio Bemba. The news may be a little stale by the time you read it, but it gets around. Whole stacks of HTML files from news websites are dumped onto USB drives, brought into the country, and disseminated from person to person.
16 GB USB flash drives are $9.93 on Amazon, while these soda themed 32 GB flash drives are $0.10 each on Aliexpress.
