Cell Phones to Enter Cuba
These days, we tend to think of access to mobile phones as something mundane. In spite of the fact that service providers all over the globe differ from one another in terms of the features they provide, owning a handset and initiating a phone call is no longer a heroic task. However, that hasn’t been the case for Cubans. As the government didn’t allow them to own cell phones and no carrier existed there, people had to get their friends or relatives abroad to provide them with such a service. Now the new Cuban president, 76-year-old Raul Castro, has decided to remove the ban although people would have no choice but to pay for it in foreign currency. For more on this, read the BBC article.
