This is a pretty nice thing to do. Hopefully other companies will blatantly rip it off.
In the wake of the powerful earthquake that devastated Nepal on April 25, Videotron announced today that its customers will be able to call Nepal free of charge from residential landlines and mobile phones.
In a gesture of support for Québec residents affected by the disaster, charges for long-distance calls placed to Nepal from April 25 through May 31 will not be billed to Videotron customers or will be credited on invoices issued after May 1st.
“Our hearts go out to the people of Nepal and their families,” said Manon Brouillette, President and CEO of Videotron. “We hope this will make it a little bit easier for our customers to stay in touch with loved ones during this trying time.”
