Where do you buy the wireless card? Is this PC card you insert into
your own computer, or what? if you have a computer with built-in
wireless, do you need to buy a card or can you just buy service?
Interesting that the Cuban government accommodates tourists with
Internet service, while most of the Cuban population does without.
The four pounds per hour would be prohibitive for them, aside from
the problem of lack of high-speed connectivity in most locations, and
of the government's intrusiveness in communication with the outside world.
