BT have announced a range of measures to help their customers keep connected during the Coronavirus outbreak. They're giving all broadband customers unlimited data, as well as capping call charges to £5 a month.
The moves will help with worries about bills and broadband limits, which should be a big help from those working at home and using the internet for home schooling, and also means you can call family and friends without building up call charges.
In a statement BT said:
- We’re removing all caps on all of our broadband packages so every customer has unlimited data during this time.
- For our BT landline-only customers we will cap the charges of calls to all UK landlines and mobiles to £5 per month, so they can make the calls they need to without worrying about their bill. (This doesn’t include international calls and premium calls).
- We’ve also made all visits to the NHS online free, so you won’t use any data while accessing information (even if you’ve already run out completely). And as always, calling 111 is free.
