Cuban government and AT&T sign telecom agreement
SAN JUAN – State-run Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba S.A. (Etecsa by its Spanish acronym) announced last week it has signed an agreement with telecommunications giant AT&T for the exchange of voice, text and data traffic between Cuba and the United States. The agreement also allows AT&T customers traveling to Cuba to have access to roaming services for voice, text and data.
Once the implementation period is over, and tests results are evaluated by both companies, AT&T mobile service customers traveling to Cuba will be able to use their cellphones within the Etecsa’s network.
Sprint announced a roaming agreement with Etecsa last fall to allow subscribers visiting Cuba to send and receive calls and text messages.
