NEW YORK — Time Warner Cable (TWC) announced Tuesday that all calls placed by its Home Phone and Business Services customers to landline and mobile numbers in the Philippines will be free through Nov. 30, and is retroactive for all calls placed since November 8.
“It is a difficult time for those who have loved ones in the Philippines and our thoughts go out to those impacted by Typhoon Haiyan,” said Rob Marcus, TWC’s President and COO. “To help the Filipino-American community keep in touch with family and friends, we are making all calls placed to the Philippines free for our Phone customers.”
TWC Phone customers who make calls to the Philippines during the eligible time period do not need to make any changes to their accounts. Customers who were charged on or after Nov. 8 will automatically be credited.
In addition, TWC has made The Filipino Channel available at no additional cost to digital TV subscribers through Friday to help customers better connect to news and information about Typhoon Haiyan recovery efforts.
