Cuba legalizes private Wi-Fi, importation of routers

Updated : May 30, 2019 12:08 PM IST

The measure announced by state media provides legal status to thousands of Cubans who created homemade digital networks with smuggled equipment that was illegal but generally tolerated by authorities in recent years.
While the new regulation permits citizens to connect to the internet with their own equipment and share the signal with others, it does not loosen state control of the internet itself.
Cuba's telecoms monopoly, Etecsa, remains the only internet provider on the island.
