Cuba’s Cell Phone Service Skyrockets

HAVANA TIMES, Jan. 2 – Cuba closed 2008 with 330,000 mobile phone clients, a figure that could go up to 1.6 million in three years, said Maximo Lafuente, vice president of the Cuban Telephone Company (ETECSA), a Cuban-Italian joint venture. “The growth in cell phones in the island is unstoppable, just like in all countries,” noted Lafuente. The price charged to contract a cell phone line in Cuba recently dropped by nearly 50 percent, to US $72, reported IPS.
