After launching free wireless service for select hospitals in Quebec and Ontario, Telus and Koodo have expanded its free program to frontline healthcare workers in British Columbia fighting COVID-19.
Telus says the program offering two months of free wireless service has reached frontline staff members or physicians working in active COVID-19 patient care units, or those assigned to key COVID-19 response roles, under the Vancouver Coastal Health umbrella.
Free Telus and Koodo service for two months has also been made available to housekeeping, food services and environmental services staff at the Fraser Health Authority.
“One of the many heartbreaking impacts of this pandemic is that many doctors, nurses and healthcare workers are isolating themselves to avoid risking the health of their families and their community. We want these heroes to know that our TELUS team is extremely grateful for their selfless actions,” said Darren Entwistle, TELUS’ President and CEO, in an issued statement.
Eligible Telus and Koodo customers will get credit applied for two months of wireless service.
“During these challenging times, we believe that staying connected to their families and loved ones, virtually, can make a meaningful difference, as the human connection is truly the greatest connection of all,” added Entwistle.
Telus says its Mobility for Good program offering two months of free wireless service will soon reach frontline healthcare workers in Alberta next.
