Foreigners Enjoy Record Internet Speed in Cuba, While Dissidents Have Phones Blocked

Saturday, September 19, 2015
Foreign journalists in Cuba (see below) are marveling at how Internet speeds have instantly (and dramatically) improved as Pope Francis landed in Havana.

The irony here is that -- simultaneously -- the phones of Cuban democracy activists have been intercepted and blocked throughout the island.

This proves two important points:

1. How the Castro regime can easily manipulate the Internet in Cuba; and
2. How limited Internet access has never had anything to do with U.S. sanctions.

Of course, this last point has been proven -- time and again -- yet remains a favorite talking point of the Castro regime and its disingenuous lobbyists in the United States.
