COSTLY DIGITAL PHONE SERVICE INSTALLED IN SANTIAGO By Margarita Yero, Cuba Free Press.

SANTIAGO - The installation of the new digital telephone lines, beginning on December 18 in this province capital will increase the cost effective January 1.

The government's monopoly newspaper - "Sierra Maestra" - quoted engineer Jose Moreno Noriega, the commercial specialist for the government's monopoly telephone service - ETECSA - as saying that the digital technology being installed is the same one being used by the most developed countries. He said this will guarantee more speed, quality of service, and efficiency.

The engineer did not comment on the heavy blow to the pockets of Santiago residents, most of whom live in abject poverty.
