AT&T’s Response to Hurricane Harvey

Beginning on Aug. 26, 2017, we will issue credits and waive additional charges to provide unlimited data, voice and text for AT&T wireless customers and unlimited voice and text to AT&T PREPAID customers in impacted areas. Please refer to http://about.att.com/inside_connections_blog/hurricane_harvey for specific details.

 

AT&T has set up emergency response equipment in strategic locations, in both Texas and Louisiana, which includes satellite COLTs (Cell on Light Trucks), Emergency Communications Vehicles (ECVs) and charging stations.

 

We have also launched a Severe Weather 4-in-1 Mix channel on DIRECTV and a Severe Weather Channel on U-verse to provide dedicated coverage of Hurricane Harvey. To learn more about AT&T’s Severe Weather Mix Channels, please visit: http://about.att.com/newsroom/severe_weather_mix_channel.html

Re: How is AT&T preparing for Hurricane Harry?

AT&T is late to the game once again.

All other major carriers announced free service to hurricane victims.

AT&T is silent on this matter. Glad to see AT&T is there to serve their customers in time of need.

All carriers announced on friday the 25th.  Sounds on time to me.

No application is needed. Affected customers will be identified by their billing zip code. Credits will be on the same bill the additional charges are on.

Hurricane Harvey Help

I haven't had power in the passed few days because of hurricane Harvey down here in Houston. And my wifi connection hasn't been available for my phone. Would I be able to get any assistance or charges waivered for the time period of the hurricane?

Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey and our customers who have friends and family there.

Beginning Aug. 26, 2017, and running through at least Sept. 1, 2017, we will issue credits to AT&T wireless customers in impacted areas for additional data, voice and text charges, and AT&T PREPAID for additional voice and text charges.*

Currently, credits will be issued to customers with billing zip codes in the following counties – Aransas, Austin, Bee, Calhoun, Chambers, Colorado, Brazoria, DeWitt, Fayette, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Gonzales, Harris, Jackson, Jefferson, Jim Wells, Karnes, Kleberg, Lavaca, Liberty, Live Oak, Matagorda, Nueces, Refugio, San Patricio, Victoria, Wailer, Wharton, and Wilson. We’ll continue to assess the impact on additional locations in the days ahead.

UPDATE AUG. 28: From Aug. 28, 2017, and running through at least Sept. 3, 2017, we will also issue credits to AT&T wireless and AT&T PREPAID customers in impacted parts of Louisiana. Credits will apply for customers with billing zip codes in Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, Jefferson Davis and Vermilion parishes.
