Cuba attracts terminators of international voice traffic with a high rate. On the other hand, this route discourages entrepreneurs as there is a strict state control over the telecommunications sphere. Cuba remains an ambiguous direction for termination; however, it is interesting to learn about the cost of cellular communication services in this country.
In Cuba, there is one mobile operator-monopolist Cubacel. Officially, there is one more GSM operator on the market - C-Com. But, in fact, it remains "invisible" to users. Because of monopoly, tariffs for local communication and SIM-cards themselves are quite expensive.
One new SIM card costs $30 but there is an initial credit of $10 on the account. At the same time, there are problems with purchasing start packages since, in Cuba, only local residents are allowed to buy prepaid SIM-cards. Cubacel tariffs on calls are divided into "day" and "night". From 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Tarifa Normal is applied and one minute of call costs $0.35, and from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. - Tarifa Reducida (the cost of a minute is $0.1). Terminating after 11:00 p.m., you can earn about $500 per channel, due to a high rate.
If, for some reason, you cannot terminate a sufficient number of minutes via the Reducida tariff, combine it with Plan Voz packages. The line is represented by several tariff plans, which provide bonus minutes for calls during the daytime:
- Plan 40. The cost is $10; the number of minutes is 40.
- Plan 25. The cost is $ 6.5; the number of minutes is 25.
- Plan 15. The cost is $ 4.2; the number of minutes is 15.
- Plan 10. The cost is $ 2.9; the number of minutes is 10.
- Plan 5. The cost is $ 1.5; the number of minutes is 5.
When you connect Plan Voz 40, one minute in the daytime will cost you $0.25. Using this package, the potential earnings will be about $100 per channel. By combining Tarifa Reducida and Plan Voz 40, you can make $200-300 via 1 channel of a gsm gateway for pbx, on average.
