Things continue to stay stupid.
USDOJ recommended that the FCC deny an undersea cable connection to Cuba due to risk to USA national security because the equipment on the Cuban end would be owned by… Cuba. 😱
Hell, everything is a risk to USA national security: the wind blowing, sun coming up, etc.
Data and telephone to Cuba is a mess because it has to go alllll the wayyy down and around through Colombia and Venezuela usually.
