Optus customers get free calls to cyclone-ravaged Fiji

Optus has announced its mobile and landline customers can make calls to Fiji for free for the next two weeks.

The telco is offering the free calls to allow customers to contact friends and family that may have suffered the consequences of the severe weather at the island nation.

Optus customers with a prepaid or post-paid mobile, or home landline will receive free standard voice calls to Fiji from 12:01am AEST Wednesday 24 February until 11:59pm 10 March 2016.

Optus alerts though that customers may experience some difficulties as a consequence of the cyclone such as busy tones, recorded voice announcements or calls going straight to voicemail.

The announcement came after rival Telstra decided not to charge customers calling Fiji from 5pm 20 February until 5pm on 27 February.

Telstra is offering free standard voice calls and texts made from personal post-paid mobiles and fixed lines to Fiji. For Telstra’s personal pre-paid customers, a refund will be applied by 7 March.
