Mobile Firms Remove Data Charges on Sites Supporting Victims of Crime Till Atleast 31st October

Posted 11th Jun 2020
Accessing a number of sites that support victims of crime will be zero rated (i.e. wont attract data usage/charges).

The Zero Rated Sites

Providing support for victims and witnesses of crime
Victim Support – victimsupport.org.uk

Providing support for victims of sexual violence and abuse
Rape Crisis – rapecrisis.org.uk
The Survivors Trust – thesurvivorstrust.org
Male Survivors Partnership – malesurvivor.co.uk

Providing support for victims of domestic abuse
Refuge and the National Domestic Abuse Helpline – refuge.org.uk
Women’s Aid and Welsh Women’s Aid – womensaid.org.uk and welshwomensaid.org.uk

Providing support for children suffering abuse
NSPCC – nspcc.org.uk

Mobile network operators EE, Vodafone, O2, Three, Sky Mobile, Virgin Media, Tesco Mobile and Giffgaff have agreed that their customers will not incur data charges when accessing the sites.

The zero-rating of these sites will only apply “during the coronavirus pandemic,” although the operators have agreed that these measures will be in effect until “at least” 31st October 2020. The move follows previous commitments from the UK’s broadband ISPs and mobile providers to support and protect vulnerable consumers, as well as the NHS, during the crisis.
