Regina Coyula, Translator: Unstated
July is almost over and I have not heard or read anything about the
operation of fiber optic cable which, with great optimism and media
hype, was laid between Cuba and its Bolivarian sister [Venezuela]. In
military life I imagine they've finished the implementation plan, but
must be keeping it secret like all things there. In civilian life, the
authorities in charge take prophylactic measures. The departments with
access to the Internet apply new versions to stop recording the sites
their surfers access, and to more carefully wipe clean their browsing
history, because this makes you a candidate for losing your connection
time, the nightmare of any "State" navigator.
The cable couldn't be the exception to Cuban plans, whose completion
date is set by the turn of events and does not adhere to any reality.
That must be the explanation for it being the end of July and civilians
continuing to get slow connections, very slow.
