Journalists, of state-run news outlets, were the first ones to receive the service, which is being provided by Cuba's telecoms monopoly - Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba SA (ETECSA).

The telecom monopoly aims to expand mobile internet to almost half of Cuba's population - five million mobile phone customers - by the end of this year.

Yet he was denied the connection as the service providers weren't "ready" and will call him as soon as they are ready.

Most mobile phone owners have smartphones, though Cuba is now installing 3G technology, even as most of Latin America has moved onto 4G, with 5G in its final testing phase.

However, the price could prove as one of the major limitations for many.

It is reported that companies and embassies pay $45 per month for only 4GB of data while the average monthly wage in the country is about $30.
