Optus offers free calls to France


In the wake of the tragic events in Nice, Optus has offered its customers free calls to France.

Optus is offering post-paid mobile and fixed customers free standard voice calls to France from 12:01am AEST 15 July until midnight 21 July.

And, pre-paid mobile customers receive zero-rated standard voice calls made to France from 07:00am AEST Saturday 16 July until midnight 21 July.

A statement from Optus says that the high volume of traffic on the telecommunications network around France may impact calls getting through.

“You may experience busy tones, recorded voice announcements or the call might go straight to voicemail.

“Any customers who wish to discuss their individual circumstances can call our customer services team on 133 937,” Optus says.

Optus’ announcement was preceded by this statement:  “Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the terrible events that have taken place in Nice, France.”
