Cuba Removes Surcharge On Calls With US

(Caribbean News Now): HAVANA, Cuba -- The Cuban government has decided to abolish a per-minute surcharge that has been added to international calls between the United States and Cuba since 2000.

The government now believes that a reduction of the price to be paid for calls will result in an increase in international telephone communications originating or ending in Cuba and, on Friday, decided to remove the surcharge.

This measure will also benefit communications between the Cuban population and the Diaspora, the government said.
