Cuba Gives Citizens Full Mobile Internet Access

Cuba is finally giving its citizens full access to the internet on their phones.

It's one of the last countries in the world to do so.  Cuba's state-run  telecommunications company ETECSA  made the announcement on Tuesday.

Starting Thursday, everyone in Cuba with 3G-capable phones will gradually be able to access the internet.  Cuba's been a little slow on the internet uptake.

The Associated Press reports until now, the  only internet access  Cubans have had on their phones is a state-run email account.

Just last year, the Cuban government rubber stamped home internet access.  Still, there are  concerns about the cost  of mobile internet access, as the  lowest package  of the service will run Cubans about $7 a month.

The average monthly wage for state workers is only about $30.
