Cubans will be able to access the internet on their mobile phones from Thursday, state-run telecoms monopoly ETECSA said, marking a milestone for what has long been one of the Western Hemisphere's least connected countries. Nearly half of the Communist-run country's 11.2 million residents have cellphones although not all will be able to afford mobile internet.In a news show broadcast late Tuesday, ETECSA executives announced a range of packages valid for 30 days from 600 megabytes for the equivalent of $7 dollars to 4 gigabytes for $30 . President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who succeeded Raul Castro in April, has championed greater connectivity, underscoring the potential for internet to boost the economy and enable Cuba to better defend its revolution online.
