The number of Cubans using mobile phones was close to 1 million at the end of 2010, up from 621,000 in 2009 and 330,000 in 2008. The numbers, released by the National Statistics Office (Oficina Nacional de Estatísticas – ONE), show the jump almost two years after the government lifted restrictions on mobile telephones.
The report points that few people have a personal computer or Internet access. There were 64 computers and 159 Internet users per 1,000 residents in 2010. Internet access is controlled by government.
