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.
