The thaw in United States and Cuba relations is a major step for both countries, but the business landscape is still a work in progress. Both domestic and foreign entrepreneurs are still gauging the opportunities available to them in the country and trying to find their place in the evolving social and economic community.
Sprint announced this week that it has signed an agreement to introduce wireless roaming in Cuba. As the hermetic island nation continues to open itself to U.S. trade and commerce, Sprint's deal with Cuba's state-run telecommunications company marks a historic first, as well as a smart move by Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure.
Last week, Cuba got its first free, public WiFi hub. But as significant as that is for the formerly hermetic island nation that's in the process of normalizing relations with the U.S. and others, it may just be the beginning of a much larger coming technology revolution in the country.
