Fiber optic cable linking Cuba to Jamaica active
BY JUAN O. TAMAYO
Cuba has activated a branch of its submarine fiber optic cable that connects to Jamaica, giving it greater bandwidth and a backup in case the main leg to Venezuela is not available, according to a U.S. company that monitors global Internet traffic.
Doug Madory, senior analyst at Renesys in Maine, said that on May 13 the company noticed that ETECSA, the Cuban government’s telecommunications monopoly, had started to receive international Internet service through Cable & Wireless Jamaica.
That shows Havana is now using the Jamaica branch of the ALBA-1 submarine cable that connects Venezuela and Cuba, Madory noted. Cuba just started carrying Internet traffic on the main Venezuela leg in January, although the cable was finished two years ago.
Madory said the Jamaica link gives Havana greater bandwidth for its international Internet connections, as well as a backup in case the leg of ALBA-1 to Venezuela is interrupted.
Until January, ETECSA was routing all Internet traffic through three satellites, which have much slower and expensive Internet connections. U.S. traffic to Cuba, for instance, had to travel about 43,000 miles — up to the satellites and then back down.
The 1,000-mile-long Cuba-Venezuela cable began carrying voice traffic for international calls last August, according to a Jan. 24 note by ETECSA, officially the Cuban Telecommunications Enterprise.
But on Jan. 10, ETECSA technicians “began to carry out quality tests on Internet traffic,” the note added. “These are being carried out using real traffic from and to Cuba, with the goal of normalizing this communication.”
The note added that even after the cable is fully operational, Cubans will not get increased or cheaper access to the Internet because the overall network on the island still requires improvements.
Cuba has one of the lowest Internet connectivity rates in the Western Hemisphere.

THERE was turmoil at a house in Emakhandeni after a man [age unknown] went berserk on catching his 12-year-old sister kissing a tenant [age unknown].
The local tabloid, B-Metro, reports that the tenant, Kudakwashe Mpofu, and the mans sister had been having an affair before they were busted.
The relationship is said to have started sometime in February.
Few days after the inception of the affair, Mpofu reportedly called the girl to his room.
The two are said to have spoken for a while and the talk seemingly led to them touching each other which inevitably led to removal of clothes.
With hormones raging uncontrollably, the two proceeded to have sex.
They indulged once.
After the first encounter, the two indulged on numerous encounters.
Chickens finally came home to roost sometime last month for the two.
It is said that on the day, Mpofu invited the girl to his room and as many times before she obliged.
The two then stood at the door to the mans room.
They are said to have exchanged romantic words and moments later decided to kiss each other.
Little did they know that trouble was brewing.
It is said that the two started kissing.
Temperatures rose to the extent that the two went on to fondle each other in the open.
As they were doing so, in came the girl’s brother who on seeing his little sister being kissed and fondled got angry and without saying anything separated the two in a flash.
He is alleged to have beaten up the man before turning his fury on his sister.
After bashing the two, the man took the two to the police.
Mpofu was then arrested on charges of rape.
The girl was taken to United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) where she was examined and the results came out inconclusive but penetration was said to be possible.
Mpofu found himself standing before provincial magistrate Mr Willard Maphios Moyo.
He was remanded in custody to 27 May.
