Cuba's ETECSA increases business telephony rates

Cuba's state-run service provider ETECSA has increased the prices of its business telephony tariffs.

Under the new pricing regime, the basic fee for a primary telephone line will be 86 cents a month. Local calls will cost 75 cents per minute between 6 a.m. and 5:59 p.m. and 53 cents per minute outside of this timeframe.

ETECSA has also terminated the bonus for local calls and increased the installation fee for primary telephone lines to $3.77.

The new rates are part of the Ministry of Communications' resolution 281/2013.

These new tariffs are just one of many new moves the incumbent telco has made to enhance its services. In the residential market, ETECSA said in June that it would extend ADSL-based Internet services to the country's homes by the end of this year.
