Fijians will now be able to make calls for free from any Telecom Fiji payphones to any emergency line and Telecom landlines in Fiji.

It is the latest in a series of initiatives by Telecom aimed at helping the greater community.

Telecom CEO, Charles Goundar says the new measure was meant to provide a free and handy service that would be of genuine use to Fijians during these uncertain times.

He says they are delighted to provide this free service as part of their corporate social responsibility to contribute to a better, more caring and more inclusive Fiji where every Fijian can reach out for help if and when they need to or just connect if necessary.

Telecom Fiji says in the past 18 months, there was a total of 25,000 minutesโ€™ worth of calls through payphones, showing that they continue to be commonly used in emergencies.

He says now the only time people queue up beside the payphones is to call home and let their families and friends know they are safe after a cyclone or some other natural disaster has cut off the mobile network.
