CUBA’s state telephone company said it has postponed plans to limit internet access for Cubans whose telephone bills are paid in local currency.
In a message to clients Saturday, the company ETECSA said the measures would not take effect that day as scheduled but at some unspecified time in the future.
The new regulations are a bid to stop password piracy and would not affect internet access from phone service paid in US dollars.
Cuba charges that since it only has limited internet access as a nation it can maintain only low volumes of customers. Social organisations should thus have priority to access the internet while paying in Cuban pesos, worth 26 to the US dollar.
