Australian Wildfires – waiving long distance fees to Australia so families can stay connected

TORONTO, January 17, 2020 – At Distributel, we do what is right for the customer and all Canadians, and starting today, we will waive all long-distance fees for one month, for all customers who need to contact family and friends in Australia as a result of the devastating wildfires.

“While we may be far from what is happening in Australia, the news has impacted us all. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by these fires,” said Brad Fisher, Chief Revenue Officer at Distributel. “We’re committed to helping our customers who need to stay in touch with family and friends during this time of need.”

Distributel Home Phone and Long-Distance customers will not be charged for making calls to Australia between January 16 and February 15, 2020.

If you would like to help, the Canadian Red Cross is accepting donations to the Australia Fires Appeals.
