The Guardian: Thousands march in Cuba in rare mass protests amid economic crisis.
>From that article:
"Many people tried to take out their phones and broadcast the protest live, but Cuban authorities shut down internet service throughout the afternoon."
Jim Bell's comment:
While some people don't like the Starlink system, it might help bypass a despotic government's ability to shut off the public's access to the Internet during some critical protests.
'Not liking' something presumes that you can evaluate the costs versus the benefits of a given technology. Can that really be done, in an objective way?
I'd rather see a situation where a government can't even attempt to cut off the population from the world's Internet.
