The Great Cable Mystery Solved

Thursday, January 24, 2013
This week began with an Internet analysis firm, Renesys, detecting data traffic stemming from Castro's infamous ALBA-1 fiber-optic cable linking Cuba and Venezuela.

This cable was completed two-years ago at a cost of $70 million and shrouded in secrecy.

Due to the Renesys report, the Castro regime found itself forced to release a statement about the cable.

According to the regime's statement, through its telecom monopoly ETECSA, the detected data traffic stemmed from a "testing" process.

After all, they need greater capacity, as two governments are now being run from Havana.

Moreover, for Cubans not to expect to be allowed connectivity, as:

"When the testing process concludes, the submarine cable being put into operation will not mean that possibilities for access will automatically multiply," said the statement.

And, of course, that the regime need more money, for this will be a socialist cable (for "social aims" only):

"It will be necessary to invest in internal telecommunications infrastructure."

So what have we learned?

That the Castro regime is in full control of the cable.

That its function will be subject to absolute secrecy.

That Cubans will continue not to have access to the Internet.

That the Castro regime wants hard currency.

Elementary, Dr. Watson.
