The Obama administration’s modified sanctions against Cuba could see telecom providers improving Internet connectivity in the country.
The U.S. could stand to make considerable money from its newfound detente with Cuba, it seems. The Obama administration is loosening its sanctions on Cuba, which means American telecom and Internet providers will now be able to make inroads into the country. According to the Washington Post, this could lead to two important changes. First, giant American telecommunications firms like Verizon, Comcast, and AT&T can enter into agreements with Cuban partners to offer better mobile and broadband service. Second, American companies can now outsource work to Cuban software developers.
