AT&T recognizes the value of cell service during the chaos and confusion following a natural disaster. As a result they will not upcharge costumers who exceed their data limits or miss payment deadlines in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.
I am a resident of central Florida who was displaced from my home due to a mandatory evacuation. Despite the power outages and wind damage we had no loss of cellular service.
Mobile phones are proven life savers and therefore indispensable in the aftermath of a natural disaster. I commend AT&T for supporting their customers in this time of hardship.
