Can Biden muster the political will to tear down Cuba’s cyberwall? The Florida Gov. says that he wants to do so. Radio Marti has helped for decades & could be re-tooled.
LOON balloons have been used elsewhere and can open up the Internet so Cubans — who desire freedom from Communist brutality — can communicate freely with each other.
The tennis court-sized balloons float 20 km above sea level, twice the altitude of commercial aircraft. On board solar panels power the balloons, which will provide 4G coverage to regions such as Kenya. And,hopefully, possibly Cuba if Biden can muster the political will.
The most likely to do something fast ? Let’s hope that the Gov. of Florida will step up to the plate and provide Internet access. He says he wants to.
In reaction to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s death,
MSNBC’s Brian Williams said the Cuban people would rather use donkey carts as transportation than the American cars from the 1950s that are still in use.
“It’s still one of those nations where you see donkey carts alongside cars, trucks and buses in downtown Havana —
because that’s exactly what they’d rather have for transportation,” Williams stated Saturday.
