AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon have promised to waive some fees and costs in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Belgium, for which the ISIS has claimed responsibility. "Our thoughts are with the people of Belgium and our customers who have friends and family there. We're going to credit our wireline and wireless customers for all calls and text messages to Belgium from March 22-28," AT&T posted on their website.

Sprint’s offer extends through March 31, T-Mobile is effective from now through March 25, however; Verizon’s extension will only give free services until today. "This is an extremely difficult time for many of our customers who have friends and family in Belgium and need to keep in touch,” said Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure in a statement. “We want to do what we can to show our support and comfort to Sprint customers.” This isn’t the first time the companies have made it easier to contact families and friends in the aftermath of a disaster; major US carriers offered a similar service after the Paris attacks.
