As to the question of whether Cuba may be censoring content, Madory wrote that is likely not the case. Countries using technical means to control content often show noticeable daily traffic patterns.
"This is due to traffic slowing during busy times when everyone is awake and using the Internet, and the censorship software is struggling to keep up," Madory wrote.
The latency patterns noticed in Cuba appear "very similar to cases of asymmetric satellite" patterns that Renesys has observed in the past, Madory wrote.
