Actually, the internet is a very expensive proposition
for Cuba. Because the US has refused to allow them to
have fiber optics, they must rely on satellite, the
most expensive form of transmission. Furthermore, a
lot of computer hardware and software is not available
to Cubans, also due to the embargo. I have used the
internet for free in remote places in Cuba (Santa
Clara, Las Tunas) but it was glacially slow. It took
30 minutes to read an email. 

Anyway, this article says that Venezuela is coming to
the rescue.
