Telus has announced it has reached an agreement with the Ministère de l’Education et de l’Enseignement Supérieur to provide up to 15,000 free data plans for students in Quebec, until the end of June.
Students in Quebec are planning to return to school starting on May 4, 2020. Telus says “this initiative will support continued learning by providing families with LTE access.”
“This public-health crisis allows us to highlight both the indispensable role played by our networks and our desire to maintain connections so that everyone can stay virtually connected with their friends and family, while ensuring that our young people are able to acquire knowledge and continue their education in a safe way,” said François Gratton, Executive Vice-President, Group President, TELUS and Chair, TELUS Québec, in a statement.
The offering of a free data plan is to help students in the province with distance learning, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
