As distressing events unfold in Ukraine, we know many people in Australia will be anxiously seeking news of their loved ones.
We want to help where we can, so from today we’ll be making it easier for our customers to stay in touch with friends and family by providing free calls to Ukraine.
And with many Ukrainians fleeing to neighbouring nations, we’ve followed the UN’s assessment of refugee movements to also make calls free to Poland, Hungary, Moldova, Slovakia and Romania.
We’ll be waiving charges for calls to these countries from Telstra home phones and post-paid mobiles for the next month, and we’ll continue to monitor the situation.
We’ve been monitoring the situation and it’s clear that staying in touch with those in the region continues to be critical, so we are extending our free calls and roaming to Ukraine and the surrounding nations where refugees have fled for another 30 days.
