From today, Cuba’s mobile subscribers will no longer have to pay to receive calls and text messages, following the introduction of a calling-party-pays (CPP) system by the island’s state-owned telecoms monopoly, Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba (ETECSA). Diario de Cuba cites a press release from the national operator as saying that fixed line customers will still pay to receive calls. National mobile calls are charged at CUC0.45 (USD0.45) per minute during peak times (7am to 10.59pm) and at CUC0.10 per minute outside of these times.
