      *Havana, Jan 24 (Prensa Latina) Cuba announced today that the
      telecommunications system ALBA-1, linking the Caribbean island with
      Venezuela and Jamaica through an undersea fiber optics cable, has been
      operational since August 2012.*
      *Internet traffic tests on system began on January 10. They use real-time
      traffic to and from Cuba, to normalize communication.

      The system initially issues voice traffic for international telephone,
      states a note from the Cuban Telecommunications Enterprise (ETECSA),
      released by Granma newspaper.

      After completing the test, the implementation of the underwater cable does
      not mean that the possibilities of access automatically increase, the
      entity states.

      It will be necessary to build out domestic telecommunications
      infrastructure and increase foreign exchange resources, aimed at paying for
      the costs of sending and receiving Internet traffic in order to achieve a
      gradual growth of the service provided mostly free of charge and with
      social objectives, the text says.*
