Cuba's Government to Slash Mobile Phone Call Costs
Published on: 22nd Jan 2012
The proposals include a 44% reduction in the cost of text messages and a 25% reduction in voice call costs, provided the payments are made in the local currency, instead of US Dollars.
Finally, they will abolish the inbound cost for receiving calls and text messages.
The country has around 1.9 million mobile phone users
When the government lifted restrictions on mobile phone ownership in May 2013, and the sole mobile network operator, ETECSA reported that it signed up 7,400 customers within the first ten days of the new regime.
A cell phone contract costs about US$120 to activate - which equates to around half a year's wages on the average state salary.
The US government also made it easier for Cubans to use mobile phones after it lifted an import embargo on the handsets and allowed relatives living in the USA to send phones back home to their families.
