Post subject: Cingular & Sprint Offer Discounts to Katrina Victims
"Cingular Wireless, the No. 1 U.S. wireless carrier, has said it would give customers in the areas devastated by Hurricane Katrina discounts on their cell phone bills, including roaming charges and text messages. Customers in the New Orleans and Biloxi, Mississippi, markets will receive a one-time 50 percent credit on their monthly fee and will not be charged for roaming, extra minutes, long-distance or text messaging from late August through September 30, according to a September 8 letter made available on Friday. Cingular's subscribers in the markets of Mobile, Alabama, Jackson, Mississippi, Baton Rouge and Lafayette, Louisiana, will get a one-time 25 percent discount on their monthly charge as well as unspecified discounts on roaming and text messages."
Nice job Cingular! Sprint has also offered a month of free access to those in the affected area, while Verizon has said they are working on a case by case basis and will try to make sure that service is not cut off to those who are late paying their bills. Verizon's offering is a little weak if you ask me. However, it's still something that these people can use and take advantage of right now. Which is head and shoulders above what T-Mobile is doing.
