Correo de Cuba - Email and Intranet in Cuba
Quiero saber como se puede crear una cuenta de @correodecuba.cu
Cual es su pagina de inicio?
Hi, I want to know how I can create an email address at correo de Cuba (= Cuban Postal Services)Where can I find the home page?
ANSWER: by Vic webmaster
CORREO DE CUBA is a private e-mail service of the Cuban State. It is an intranet, access to internet, other websites and search engines is not possible. You can only create an account in Cuba in a Correo de Cuba office, where you can buy time credit too. There is no home page as it is only an email service, not a website. This service is intended as a cheaper email access for Cubans. The (real)internet in Cuba is expensive (6 CUC - 5 USD per hour) most Cubans can not afford this, so they use the cheaper Correos de Cuba service to send emails in Cuba and abroad. You can send an email from your Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail account or any other mail service to a correo de cuba mail address. You only need to know the email address of your correspondent in Cuba, example: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a Cuban friend. She told me that two days ago she send me an e-mail. However, I haven't received anything. Does Cuban government delay e-mails? Do you thing that I might receive it in few days?
Answer by Vic
Yes it is possible.There are several possibilities why the email doesn't arrive.
- Is the address correct?
- The email can be delayed due to system overload
(remember Cuba has no access to the fibercable due to the embargo)
- There are often power outages, even Cuban governmental websites that are (temporary) out of service. Try textmessaging to a cellphone.
