Do you have family living in Cuba, vacationing in Cuba, or doing business in Cuba, necessitating long stays in the Caribbean country? Staying in touch can be complicated and expensive if you’re still relying on your main phone carrier or buying long distance calling cards. Both methods leave a lot to be desired; while your carrier offers exorbitant rates, long distance calling cards that advertise low, affordable rates for international calls from Canada often claw back large sums of money through unadvertised fees or practices like minute rounding. There’s often no way to tell how much of the money you spend on a calling card actually gives you time to talk. Meanwhile, internet access in Cuba means that VoIP calling can be difficult and unreliable.
