Reuters reports that Cuba’s National Statistics Office has released data for end-2008 showing there were 1.4 million fixed and mobile telephone lines in service, giving a total of 12.6 lines per 100 inhabitants in the country of 11.2 million, the lowest combined penetration in the region. The general public were only recently allowed to own mobile phones. The report added that there were a total of 630,000 computers in Cuba, with most understood to be in government offices, health facilities and schools, giving 13% of the population some form of access to the internet, but this is believed to be - in most cases - via a government intranet. No data was available for unrestricted access to the worldwide web.
