Distributel and Primus Communications are Waiving all Home Phone Long-Distance Charges for Calls Made to Haiti and Afghanistan

Toronto, August 20, 2021 – Distributel Communications and Primus Communications, as part of the Distributel group of companies that includes Acanac, will be waiving all long-distance fees for their home phone customers for calls made to Haiti and Afghanistan. Following the devastating tragedies unfolding in these two countries, all Distributel and Primus home phone customers who need to contact their loved ones will be able to do so without the worry of long-distance charges.

“The news of what is happening in Haiti and in Afghanistan has impacted every member of the Distributel family. Therefore, it is only right for us step up and help where we can,” 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 these difficult times.”

Calls made by Distributel and Primus Home Phone customers will not be charged when made between August 15, 2021, and September 30, 2021.

If you would like to help, the Canadian Red Cross is accepting donations to the Haiti Hurricane Relief Fund.
