Mobile telephony/cellphones

Both TDMA and GSM mobile networks are used on Cuba, however they do not cover all regions. In built-up areas, such as Havana and Varadero, you are certain to find an available network, but you should check with your provider before leaving if and where you will be able to use your phone in Cuba.
Otherwise you can rent a phone from the Cuban provider Cubacel.

Internet and Fax

Internet
Almost all hotels provide internet access or at least the ability to send and receive email. The cost is around 6 US$ per hour. The appearance of internet pages can take considerably longer than you are used to because the connection is made via satellite.

Fax
Virtually all hotels in Cuba provide national and international fax reception and transmission for guests and non-guests alike.
