Cheap calls table on Cuba Page

The call rates in the tables on Cuba page are listed in the order of cheapest provider first. All access numbers, and their respective call rates, on the page are for cheap calls to Cuba. You can switch between landline rates and mobile rates in the page header. You don't need to browse through numerous providers' web sites to get up to date call rates and access numbers to Cuba, they are all listed on this page. A brief help text in the header of the table explains the meaning of each column. Below is the detailed explanation about the information in each column of the table:

  1. Access Number - the number to dial before calling Cuba. There is no subscription or pin code to enter, when you dial the access number. Just dial access number, wait for the prompt and then dial the phone number in Cuba. For instructions on how to make a cheap international call to Cuba please refer to the section below, on this page. The information about how to dial a number in Cuba using access numbers is available in help section, How to make a cheap call to Cuba.
  2. Price p/min - price of the call (pence per minute) for an access number to call Cuba. Each access number has a different call rate. Note that this is only a service charge of the price. Your phone line is charged this amount per minute, when you make a call to this access number, plus an access charge or, as it is sometimes called, connection charge. You begin to be charged the moment you make a call to the access number and not when someone picks up the phone on the other end. The connection charge is what your line provider charges you in addition to the price stated in the table. The connection charge varies with phone provider. For more information on call charges please refer to help section, Call charges for access number to call Cuba.
  3. Call Quality % - the quality of the sound for the given access number (and thus given provider of cheap calls). 100% represents perfect quality, whereas 0% means nothing can be heard. Please note that this information is not updated daily, unlike access numbers and prices for calls to Cuba. We only used a random subset of access numbers and destinations for each provider, in order to establish the sound quality of the call, due to the limited resources that Call Rates Scanner has at its disposal. If you found that the sound quality for a specific provider is different from that stated here, please let us know, stating which destination you called and which provider and access number you used. Our contact details can be found in Contact section.
  4. Call OHD sec - the time overhead of the call in seconds. This is a average combined time that the caller has to wait before actually speaking to someone on the other end. This is the time for which you pay whilst not actually talking to anyone. This is the time you waste before dialing the actual number in Cuba plus the time you wait for the phone to ring on the other end. For more information on call charges please refer to Call charges for access number to call Cuba. Please note that this information is not updated daily, and only a handful of access numbers and destinations were checked for each provider. This is due to the limited resources that Call Rates Scanner has at its disposal. If you found that the wait times (overheads) for a specific provider is vastly different from what is stated here, please let us know, stating which destination (i.e. Cuba) you dialed and which provider and access number you used. Our contact details can be found in Contact section.
  5. Data Verity % - the accuracy of information about access numbers and pricing on the provider's website or other provider's sources. For example, if the data about access numbers is out of date or inaccurate, then you may end up paying for the calls that are doomed to fail. This usually happens when the information on the website is updated much later than access numbers themselves. Normally, when you call outdated access number, you will hear an automated message with new a valid access number for Cuba, but only after you have made the call to the number in Cuba via the old access number, which means that you have already been charged for a minute or two plus the connection charge. The smaller the value in this column, the more likely you are to waste time and money due to invalid access numbers being advertised. Please note that data verity is not updated daily and is based on historical occurrences of provider's stale or incorrect data - it indicates provider's past performance of keeping the data fresh. It is also possible that some providers are caught more than others, due to the limited resources that are available to us. If you found that the freshness of information that a specific provider offers is different from what is indicated here, please tell us, stating which destination you called and which provider and access number you used. Please refer to Contact on how to contact Call Rates Scanner.
  6. Provider - the name of the cheap calls provider. The provider owns the access numbers and draws the revenue from service charge part of the price (the price, stated in the comparison tables on Call Rates Scanner pages). We do not list url links to the websites of providers compared. If you are one of the listed providers and wish for the link to your website to appear on Call Rates Scanner pages, please contact us. Please refer to Contact page on how to contact Call Rates Scanner.
