Finally, 3G has arrived in Cuba on Thursday, but the people have to pay the colossal amount to access 3G on their cell phone.

Announcing the deal on television on Tuesday night, Cuba’s state telecom monopoly ETECSA’s executive said that “the 3G internet packet will come at a range from 600MB for 7 convertible Cuban pesos ($7) to 4GB for 30 Cuban pesos ($30).

ETECSA on its website said that “the rollout of 3G across the country will take place from Thursday to Sunday.” It also noted that “the increased access to the internet was part of Cuba’s digitalization of society.”

According to Trading Economics reports “The average salary the people took home in Cuba is equating to around $30 per month.”
