OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – May 23, 2017 – Effective yesterday through May 24, 2017, Sprint (NYSE:S) is waiving all international call and SMS charges to the United Kingdom for Sprint, Boost and Virgin Mobile customers in the U.S., and for roaming voice and SMS for Sprint customers in the United Kingdom following yesterday’s attack in Manchester. Charges will be automatically waived during the time specified.
Customers are encouraged to use text messaging when possible due to high call volumes and possible network congestion in the local area.
“In the wake of this most recent act of unconscionable terrorist violence in Manchester, we extend our deepest sympathies to the victims and their families,” said Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure. “We are committed to helping Sprint customers stay in touch and be able to check up on loved ones without additional worries.”
