Undersea cable network to benefit Cuba’s telephone service

HAVANA, July 14 (Xinhua) — The Venezuela-Cuba undersea cable network will benefit Cuba’s telephone development, said Maximo Lafuente, vice president of Cuban Telecommunication Company (ETECSA) on Wednesday.

According to Lafuente, the cable will cost 70 million U.S. dollars covering 804,500 km from La Guaira, Venezuela, to Santiago de Cuba, 1,384 km southeast of Havana.

It will be extended to Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and the Lesser Antilles. The Franco-Chinese company Alcatel Shanghai Bell is responsible for its operation which started two months ago.

Cuba’s international connection will increase with the remarkable enhancement of its transmission speed, said Lafuente.

Cuba has more than 1 million mobile phone users, accounting for about 10 percent of its population.
