Primus is permanently eliminating excess data charges on all its limited internet plans, its parent company Distributel announced.
Earlier this year, Distributel acquired Primus, placing it under Canadian ownership. Distributel had stated that the acquisition will allow the two companies to build a stronger Canadian telecoms brand that offers residential, commercial and wholesale services.
Primus temporarily eliminated data overload charges in March 2020, as did other operators towards the start of the pandemic, but now joins Distributel in making the decision permanently.
“We are very proud to be able to do this for our clients. The satisfaction of our customers is a priority for us, ”said Matt Stein, CEO of Distributel, in a press release.
“As Canadians continue to experience the COVID-19 pandemic, more than ever, the importance of having affordable unlimited internet access is a must, and we will be here to support your changing needs,” Stein said.
Distributel notes that this change is effective immediately on all limited plans and that customers do not have to take any action.
The airline says this decision will help Canadians who are working or learning from home stay connected without worrying about additional costs.
