About Cubacel

Cubacel, at this point, is the only telecom provider in Cuba. It it owned by ETECSA, a government owned telecommunications service provider. ETECSA provides telephone, internet and wireless services. Telecommunication works well on the island, but the internet and wireless is not as developed.

Travelling to Cuba,tourists need to keep in mind, using the internet it is rather slow. The same applies for Wi-Fi spots. There are only a few hotspots on the island and the connection is rather slow too.

You can top up Cuban SIM cards for friends or family here, starting from 250 CUP.
