Some 2,000 Cuban households are getting to grips with free Internet access as part of a government-run pilot scheme in downtown Havana.
Cuba has one of the lowest online connectivity rates in the world. Just five percent of its 11.2 million residents is estimated to have home Web access.
Most Cubans can only access the Internet through public wi-fi hotspots.
Leonor Franco and her sister, Margarita Lopez, were among those chosen to take part in the trial.
“I had never had any experience with the Internet, not even with computers. I’ve only had the computer for two years. Before that (I had) a typewriter. I’m a typist, but with a typewriter. But a computer, just two years ago. It changed my life,” said Leonor.
