 Communications in Cuba

Telephone service varies greatly in quality from place to place despite major improvements in recent years. The problem for Cubans starts with simply getting a telephone line, and many have waited long years with no luck. Those who have telephones, however, enjoy fairly reliable service both within cities and long distance between cities. Public telephones are widely available, and large numbers of public telephones have been installed that use prepaid debit cards, also widely available at US 10 and 20.

For most visitors the main communications concern is keeping in touch with people outside Cuba, and for this the system usually works well.

Practically all hotels have good international telephone service, both for receiving calls from abroad and for dialing from Cuba. Most hotels offer telephone service in the lobby for non-guests, and many have installed direct international dialing from guest rooms. International calls can also be made from public telephones using the prepaid debit cards.

Cellular telephones are also available for rent by visitors although lack of installations reduces their use to the major cities and tourist areas.
