Buy a satellite. Put an entire country online.

See YouTube video that explains the idea

Another Tweet, evidently from the {think} Cuba summit in Panama:

Janessa Goldbeck, whose LinkedIn profile describes her as a "Consultant at Department of Defense," said via Twitter:
Sitting in Panama with the guy behind this ridiculous but awesome idea: http://buythissatellite.org/
Buy This Satellite is an intriguing project. Activists are trying to raise money to buy a satellite. In theory, they could then point it into any country, including Cuba.
Activists would have to supply users with low-cost modems in target countries.
The group's website says:
We believe that access to information is a human right.
