SMS Cuba introduces the first direct, phone-to-phone text messaging service between the U.S. and Cuba.
FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — SMS Cuba (www.smscuba.com) announced today that it has launched seamless text messaging services between the United States and Cuba. The service allows users to communicate directly with their contacts in Cuba with its instant, two-way, phone-to-phone messaging service. Previously, no text message service was available between the U.S. and Cuba from any U.S.-based wireless carrier. Communications with Cuba have been difficult due to limited email and Internet access in Cuba, and a lack of connections with U.S. phone services. SMS Cuba has created a network that opens the lines of communication between the U.S. and Cuba using mobile phones.
SMS Cuba began its operations to solve the problem of lack of reliable communications between the U.S. and Cuba.
Founder and CEO Frank S. Caruso said, “I have been a student of the Cuban Telecom environment for the past 20 years. I have been creating practical solutions that give value to businesses and individuals. SMS Cuba is the first of these solutions.”
Landline telephones in Cuba are common, but calling from the U.S. is expensive and often cost-prohibitive. Email is possible, but less than 25% of Cubans have reliable Internet access, according to the International Telecommunications Union. Text messaging is the most viable solution for Cuba because it requires neither Internet access nor a landline telephone—just a mobile phone. And, texting is taking over as the communication mode of choice worldwide.
SMS Cuba has identified the growing need for Americans to have reliable communications with Cuba, due to rapidly expanding travel and business interests. Additionally, Americans with family in Cuba are in need of affordable, reliable means of communication. SMS Cuba’s service solves all of these problems. And, with thawing relations between the two countries, the need has never been greater.
SMS Cuba was founded by CEO Frank S. Caruso, a 25-year veteran of the telecommunications industry. Mr. Caruso is the founder of several telecommunications firms including Cloud South, SIPBound Corporation, USA Datanet, and SCC Telecommunications.
