How to obtain the service?
To access Internet in Cuba, you should enable the mobile data on your phone, configure the APN Nauta and access to www.etecsa.cu or www.mi.cubacel.net to be detected by the network provider.
If you rather connect to the 4G network, please check that you are using an USIM and once completed the previous steps, send an SMS to 2266 with the text: LTE
Cubacel will send an SMS confirming the access.
How does it work?
