Still here for you
Following the announcement of a further lockdown on the Isle of Man, Manx Telecom put in place the following support measures to ensure that families and businesses can remain connected over the coming weeks. This includes some temporary measures that are still in place following the lockdown in Spring 2020 which we have maintained over the year to help our customers and clients during these challenging times.
Low User Choice
Our social inclusion tariff “Low User Choice” is a simple, low-cost voice only service that is easy to understand and is designed to help our most vulnerable customers and many elderly people on low incomes or Government benefits. To support Low User Choice customers we have made all local and national calls to fixed and mobile are free on this tariff. Customers on “Low User Choice” do not need to take any action to take advantage of this benefit.
Capped Broadband – we’ve taken the caps off
We are releasing capped broadband services for no additional charge. This is to help ensure our Essential and Fast broadband customers - including the most vulnerable and many elderly - can keep in contact with their family and friends using email, Skype, Facetime and similar online tools.
Customers will still see the 80% and 100% capped redirect portal page messages, with updated text advising that capped release fees are now free. If a customer uses all of their data they just need to check the link on the 100% capped redirect to release their connection, free of charge.
