Google signs agreement with Cuba to improve online services

Google signs agreement with Cuba to improve online services

HAVANA, Cuba -- Internet search giant Google and Cuba’s national telecom provider ETECSA have signed an agreement to deploy the Google Global Cache service to help improve the online experience for Cubans who are using Google products.

The deal allows ETECSA to use Google’s technology to reduce online wait time by caching some of its most popular high-bandwidth content like YouTube videos on local servers. This in turn means that Cubans who already have access to the internet and want to use Google’s services can expect to see an improvement in terms of quality of service and reduced latency for cached content.

Google’s involvement with Cuba dates back to 2014, when the company first launched a number of products that included Google Chrome, Google Play and Google Analytics. Just a couple of months ago, it followed that up by making hundreds of thousands of free extensions and themes available on the Chrome Web Store to let Cuban users personalize their experience browsing the web with Chrome.

Taken together, all these projects are said to be tied to Google’s core values to make the world’s information useful and accessible to everyone regardless of cost, connectivity, and language barriers.
