This includes a legal standard of superior rank, thus being the first to be applied in the Cuban nation. Thanks to the regulations, there will be greater coherence and ordering in the current regulatory framework.

The new legal instruments also include:

  • Decree 42/21 that approves the General Regulation of Telecommunications and Information and Communication Technologies.

The director of regulations of the Ministry of Communications (Mincom), Wilfredo López, stressed that his objectives are to satisfy the general needs of the State, especially those related to security and national and civil defense in telecommunications matters.

Likewise, it guarantees development and technological convergence and prioritizes the implementation of broadband networks, while defending the interests of citizens and ensuring access to services and constitutional rights; in particular the principle of equality, privacy and secrecy in communications.
