Cuba is in the pre-execution stage to bring the country’s first-ever home broadband service to homes in the capital  of Havana, the Cuban state telecommunications company announced on Sunday.

The Telecommunications Company of Cuba (ETECSA) said that it would begin allowing Cubans to order the fiber optic connection, to be operated by Huawei, a Chinese telecom company, in two Havana neighborhoods, in a move that will have the Communist country that much closer to being logged into the blogosphere.

Cafés, bars and restaurants will also be able to request broadband access, according to state media. Acoording to a AP report, only diplomats and workers at foreign companies have legal access to home broadband connections.
