Tesco Mobile has announced free evening and weekend calls for customers in the UK to help them keep in touch with friends and family during the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative announced that all of its 5.2 million customers in the UK will be able to take advantage of the free calling promotion immediately, which will run during the hours of 8pm to 8am Monday to Friday as well as throughout the weekend. Subscribers can find further details from the company's website.
CEO of Tesco Mobile Tom Denyard spoke on the free evening and weekend calls promotion saying, "At Tesco Mobile we always want to support our customers in the most helpful way. In these unprecedented times we’ve seen a huge increase in our customers using their minutes allowance with relatively little change to data usage or text messaging, so free minutes felt the best way to help all of our customers right now. We wanted everyone to have a chance to talk to their loved ones for free each day, especially the most vulnerable and those in isolation. We put our customers first and know that now, more than ever, every little helps.”
