ETECSA Restores Internet Service in Navigation Rooms and Wifi Hotspots /
14ymedio, Havana, 18 August 2016 — The Cuban Telecommunications Company
SA (ETECSA) said Thursday that “internet access from navigation rooms
and wifi hotspots was restored in 17 August, along with access to ENET.”
The disruption led to a flood of complaints from customers of the
Etecsa apologized for the inconvenience caused by service failures,
problems that have become common in recent months. In mid-July, the
company announced problems with Nauta e-mail access from cellphones due
to maintenance work.
In November 2015 users were unable to send or receive e-mails for six
days, a problem that was repeated a month later and resolved after a
delay of more than 24 hours.
The wireless network known as WIFI_ETECSA began operations on 1 July
2015, and now counts more than 80 navigation hotspots in the
country. Each day about 200,000 people use this infrastructure to access
the vast World Wide Web.
