No charge for service not used during hurricane disruption

Telecom company CCT has announced that it will not charge customers for the period they were without service as a result of Hurricane Irma, adding that the relief credits will be reflected on the September bills.

But the company noted that persons who use services such as roaming, which are outside their agreed plans, will be required to pay up.

“Due to loss of service after Hurricane Irma, prorated service fee credits will be added to all accounts for the period of time in which service was unavailable. We are reviewing each account to assign service fee credits appropriately, pursuant to each customer’s activity.”

“However, amounts due for activity outside service plans such as roaming charges is due and payable as always. CCT will inform customers individually of the prorated service fee credits applied to their accounts,” the company said in a press release this afternoon, October 5.
