Project name: Cuban Network
Company/client: Empresa De Telecomunicaciones de Cuba (ETECSA) S.A.
Tratos has supplied more than 10 million Euros of telecommunication cable to Telecommunications Company ETECSA, the Government owned telecommunications service provider for Cuba, for development of its communications network.
Cuba has the lowest level of internet connectivity in the western hemisphere and access remains prohibitively expensive for most of the population.
To alleviate the issue, Cuba’s State Telecommunications company, ETECSA, recently began running a pilot program to install internet connections in 2,000 homes throughout the country, although it is believed that the service will remain too expensive for many.
