"Quote Paul Brislen"

Hi all,

Just to let you know for the next two days calls from Vodafone mobile or landline numbers to Samoa will be free.

It starts at 6pm tonight.

Everyone at Vodafone wishes the people of Samoa our very best. We're thinking of you.

Gotta' say. I'm quite proud of Vodafone for doing this. I don't care what anyone else says.
It's still a very good effort - even if I don't know anyone in Samoa!

+1 for Vodafone

Also Telecom, 2Degrees and Orcon are offering similar deals. Check with your operator for times.

If i'm not mistaken, Vodafone were the first to have this set up though.

Quite unbelievable really; one of the most selfless free offers coming out of an com provider and theres always somebody who complains!  In reality the first 48 hours of the disaster would not have benefited from [some] people taking advantage of the free offer leading to a reduction in necessary internal emergency communication!!

yes, it's worth mentioning that although the calls are free, they still use up valuable resources on what is a relatively fragile network in Samoa.

For anyone calling samoa, they should try to keep calls relatively brief where possible.  Too much network overload and really important calls (emergency calls) may not get through.
