To show our support for the people of Canterbury the 2degrees Call Centre and 2degrees as a whole will be observing the 2 minute silence at 12:51pm.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We also respectfully ask people to put their phones onto 'silent mode' during the 2 minutes.

That is just bloody rude! Some one should have hung the call up for them!

Good on you 2degrees for your effort!

We observed it in the IT dept at of building seemed to be reasonably quiet, even traffic noise seemed to drop right off.

Very moving today how everyone paid their respects. Heard from one of our sites that every person in the complex (in the thousands) stopped still and stayed silent except for one "emo girl"...

It was very moving. No one called during the 2 min silence.

Kia kaha Christchurch.
