Cell Phones Become More Affordable For Cubans


In a country where the average income is only $20 a month and personal computers cost around $800, access to technology for Cubans is something that's often restricted to the rich. Recently, Cuba's government owned telephone service provider Etecsa, decreased the cost of cell phone activation from $120 to about $65, almost a 50 percent decrease.

At present, in order for Cuban residents to make phone calls from their mobile phones, they must purchase phone cards and pay 30 cents a minute for local calls and $2.70 a minute for calls made to the US. Although these costs are still quite expensive, the price drop for cell phone activation has helped to make mobile access and use for residents a reality.
