HAVANA — A company that monitors global Internet traffic says another
branch of the Venezuela-to-Cuba undersea fiber-optic cable has come
online, connecting the island to nearby Jamaica.
Internet analysis firm Renesys says it detected the new traffic between
Cuban state telecom monopoly Etecsa and Cable & Wireless Jamaica
beginning May 13.
Renesys analyst Doug Madory announced the new connection in a post on
the company’s blog Monday.
