Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Data for Google services will be stored in Cuba, under a deal announced this week between the company and the Cuban government. As the Associated Press reports, the deal will not expand public internet access in Cuba, one of the world’s least-connected countries, but it is expected to decrease load times for Google services like Gmail and YouTube. Storing Google data within Cuba will give the country faster access to the Google Cache Network, making load times for its services up to 10 times faster, according to the AP.
