Cuba’s state-owned telecoms monopoly, Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba (ETECSA), has reduced the cost of making a national mobile phone call to CUC0
.35 (USD0.35) per minute from CUC0
.45, reports Telesemana. The move comes almost one year after the rate of a domestic mobile voice call was reduced from CUC0
.60. Earlier this month the operator also introduced a calling-party-pays (CPP) system, meaning that the island’s mobile subscribers no longer have to pay to receive calls and text messages.
