In response to the devastating tornado that hit Oklahoma City recently, AT&T announced that it will be waiving all overage charges for those affected through June 30.
For those of you who aren’t fully aware of what’s been going on, on Monday afternoon local time, Oklahoma City saw a large tornado system rip through parts of the city and surrounding areas. The whole catastrophe left many buildings flattened and at least 91 fatalities in its wake. According to The New York Times as well as several other media outlets, the storm system was one mile wide.
Several hours later, AT&T ended up announcing that it would be supporting efforts by waiving voice, data and text overage charges through the end of June for affected areas. According to Bryan Gonterman, the state president for AT&T Oklahoma:
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tornado that hit the Oklahoma City area Monday. We are coordinating with local authorities and bringing in additional resources.
It’s nice to see larger companies providing relief efforts for such a catastrophic event.
