See more from the AT&T Archives at http://techchannel.att.com/archives The Cuban American Telephone & Telegraph Co. first linked the mainland U.S. (Key West) with Cuba in 1921. That first cable was extremely primitive, just two wires protected by insulation and armor. Over the next 20 years, a total of six cables were deployed to handle US-Cuba telephone traffic. The last two of which are chronicled in this film, from 1950. The cable used in this film was comparatively state-of-the-art — it used the newly-deployed polyethylene as both insulation and waterproofing. Diplomatic relations with the U.S. decayed at the end of the 1950s, but AT&T still provided Cuba's link with the world for decades following, using not only the cables (which by the late 1980s were all damaged or severed) but...

A few years ago some computer gamers based in Havana strung a small web of ethernet cables, from house to house, so they could play video games together. The network has grown quietly and today its called StreetNet: a bootleg internet for Havana with over 10,000 users. It was an innovation forged by necessity in a country where only 5 percent of the citizens have access to the uncensored internet. Watch the why Cuba's internet is stuck in 1995. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Cuba has some of the worst internet access in the world, with just 5 percent of Cubans able to access the uncensored web.

Back in the 1980s I made this series for Ted Turner and Turner Broadcasting. A two-hour incredible special on Cuba. Turner wanted to put cable television there. I don't know if he succeeded. But the film is a great piece of Cuban history. David Hoffman - filmmaker www.thehoffmancollection.com
El enlace por cable de fibra óptica entre Venezuela, Cuba, Jamaica y después otros países del área es una acción de soberanía tecnológica, y un acto de justicia histórica, pues permitirá a la Isla burlar el bloque de Estados Unidos a la mayor de las Antillas.

Everyone’s talking about Cuba and the U.S. mending fences, but what will Cuba be exporting in greatest numbers? It’s a little-explored question that will lead us to understand who Cubans really are. CCTV delves into baseball, art, entrepreneurship and medicine: Cuba has a top-notch pharmaceutical industry, can it compete with Big Pharma? Because of Cuba’s strong education system, the answer is “yes,” Cuba can compete. In fact it already does, and its successes have created an overlooked but burgeoning middle class. These are the people at the forefront of what will likely be Cuba’s future as it moves into this new era. We see what they’re up to, and where they think their country will go. These are all stories of hope that come together to explain the heart of the country. Watch CCTV Amer...
