(Jun 02, 2008) On April 9, 2008, the Cuban government published a resolution that authorizes the acquisition and use of cell phones by Cuban citizens. Previously, it has been reported that cellular phones were offered only to foreigners and Cubans in high-ranking government positions. However, other Cubans already had cell phones through contracts that foreigners opened for them. ETECSA (Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba, Cuba's cell phone company) recently indicated that Cubans in this situation may change these contracts, in order to appear themselves as the real users of their cell phones.
