Cuba’s state-owned telecoms monopoly Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba (ETECSA) has given its residential fixed telephony subscribers until the end of September 2013 to update their contracts in line with new legislation, Cubasi.cu reports. Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) Resolution 82 of 25 May 2012 amends the conditions under which ETECSA fixed telephony users can transfer ownership of their landline connection. Previously, a contract could only be transferred to another person in the case of death or if the owner leaves the country on a permanent basis, but under the new legislation, the subscriber is able to transfer their fixed telephony contract to a person of their choice. Existing subscribers have been given until 30 September 2013 to update their contracts in line with the new legislation.
