Cuban phone company reports 7,400 new cell phone accounts
Cuba's telephone monopoly says 7,400 new cell phone accounts have been contracted in the 10 days since all Cubans were allowed to sign up for service.
According to the CIA World Factbook, the population of Cuba is 11.4m.
A cell phone contract costs about $120 to activate — half a year's wages on the average state salary.
