KQED: AS/COA's Alana Tummino on Silicon Valley's Interest in Cuba

AS/COA's policy director talks to KQED News in Northern California about internet access in Cuba and Silicon Valley companies' interest in entering that market.

As travel between the United States and Cuba becomes more common, so does the export of telecommunication equipment to Cuba. "For the first time [Cubans] are videochatting with family in Miami, they’re being able to see relatives they haven’t seen for a while," AS/COA Policy Director Alana Tummino told KQED News in Northern California, in this interview about what the near future holds for internet connectivity and digital communications in the island. "This amazing idea of being able to connect is slowly taking hold."
