In what can only be called a stunningly generous and sensible move, Aliant is making all residential calls to 13 tsunami-affected areas free until February 28, 2005. Here’s their news release; they’re also running ads to this effect.
Regular overseas long distance rates to these countries are expensive: Thailand is $2.29 a minute, India is $1.69 a minute, Burma is $5.69 a minute. Even Somalia, with Aliant’s most expensive per-minute rate of $5.79, is covered under this offer. Bravo Aliant!
