Bmobile is assuring customers that the websites can be accessed from any mobile internet compatible device for free and without fear of depleting existing data bundles.
It says that if, however, customers are redirected to another website not included in the zero-rated list, charges may be incurred.
“bmobile recognizes that a critical part of taking the necessary precautions to protect against the virus entails having accurate, verifiable information easily available. As the indigenous provider, deeply invested in Trinidad and Tobago and bridging the digital divide, bmobile remains committed to doing its part to provide support when needed the most,” the statement said.
