OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 – Following the destruction caused by Hurricane Maria, Sprint today extended its waived text, call and data overage fees for Sprint, BoostMobile and Virgin Mobile customers in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands through September 24, 2017. Fees will be proactively waived during the specified timeframe. Customers on Unlimited plans will continue to enjoy their unlimited data, call and text benefits. Customers are encouraged to use text messaging when possible due to high call volumes and possible network congestion in the local area.
“The residents of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not yet know the full extent of the damage done to their communities after this second massive storm, but we want to support them in these early hours and days,” said Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure. “As authorities and our teams on the ground assess the situation, we will work to continually support our employees and customers throughout the impacted region.”
