EXCLUSIVE ONNI: Measuring Internet Censorship in Cuba’s ParkNets-Study

Since most of the wifi hotspots are located in parks, we dubbed them “*ParkNets*”. When hanging out in ParkNets, ONNI noticed that almost all Cubans accessed the internet via their mobile phones. We also noticed that they appeared to be using the internet primarily for communications. When talking to locals, they mentioned that – in their view, at least – most Cubans use the internet to connect with their family and friends (many of whom are abroad). Facebook Messenger is extremely popular in Cuba, and so is the IMO app. Given the high cost of accessing the internet, it’s probably no wonder why Cubans optimize for using the internet primarily for communications purposes.
