don’t know about calling rates to Cuba, but it was a bit of shock to discover that to call Canada from Cuba was 2 CUC/minute after they’d lowered the rate (was something like 2.50 CUC/min).  Calling Europe was 2.50 CUC/min if i recall.
Have to admit though, never had any trouble getting through, and always clear sound.  Phone cards bought from Etecsa worked on most phones in the Varadero and Havana areas (don’t know how well equipped for international calling other areas are)

I find it cheaper to use skype to landline, much cheaper all round.
