In the wake of the ghastly terrorist attacks at Brussels, Belgium, carriers in the U.S. have now announced free calls and texts to Belgium starting today. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint (including Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile) have made the announcements.
Sprint has mentioned that it will offer free texts and calls to Belgium through March 31. T-Mobile will offer free calls through the 25th of March, AT&T till the 28th and Verizon till the 23rd of March (tomorrow). The carriers might bill the customers of the charges, but will also make a mention of the credit on the bill.
This is a novel thing that the carriers have jointly done and will go a long way in keeping in touch with their friends and loved ones in Belgium. While we wish that some carriers offered the promotion for slightly longer, it’s a noteworthy gesture nevertheless. Some of these carriers are offering a similar service to Turkey which was also hit by a terrorist attack not too long ago.
