Recent quotes and/or interviews in the media from faculty
Private intranet networks are not exclusive to Cuba and can be found around the world, including in Spain, Britain, and New York. “The ones in Spain and Britain are not in big cities, like New York City, where there is a good alternative. They tend to be in rural areas where it’s not worth it for the phone companies to bring connectivity. Cuba should work with SNet and provide internet connectivity, but it’s obvious that is not going to happen.” – Larry Press, a professor of information systems who also blogs about the internet in Cuba, was interviewed for the NBC News story “In Cuba, gamers lament what they see as the end of the island’s underground network”
