Providing free calls to Ukraine and some surrounding countries

Woolworths Mobile wants to help where we can, and make it easier for our customers to stay in touch with friends and family by providing free calls to Ukraine.

Update: offer extended to the end of May, and extended to international roaming services.

From Tuesday 1st March 2022 until the end of May 2022, you can make free voice calls and SMS from Australia to all destinations in these countries: Ukraine, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Slovakia.

From Tuesday 8th March 2022 until the end of May 2022, you can use International roaming services in Ukraine and these surrounding countries for free: Ukraine, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia.

We’ll be waiving charges for calls and International Roaming to these countries until expiry, and will continue to monitor the situation.

Things you need to know:
  • Keep in mind that calls to these regions may not always go through, due to potential infrastructure damage in the region.
  • You will not see the free calls logged in call records via the Mobile app, My Account and Invoice. You will however see these in your phone usage.
  • This applies to all Woolworths Mobile active services - Prepaid, Long Expiry, SIM Only and Phone Plans - even those without international call inclusions.
  • International Calling is enabled by default. If it has been switched off, please Chat with Us so we can re-enable it.
  • If you currently have a PAYG International & Other and make calls to any of the above countries, they will be free and won’t come out of your Add-on.

      They probably don't want to pay for 1000s of prank calls to Putin and his cronies 🤔

    Nice! I hope all the other phone companies are following suit. Money shouldn't be an object when it comes to contacting people when their country is being invaded.
    As others have said though it would be nice if it was expanded to other countries that many refugees have fled to.
    Love the intent though :)

    & No I'm not implying Russia in any way shape or form should be on that list.

      It is!

      • Yes, but I think it could go beyond just those. It's great that the obvious countries on their border were included from the jump though :)

      Should be. Pretty narrow minded comment to be honest. I'm sure there are plenty of russian people affected badly by the severe sanctions who dont want any wars.

      Nonetheless, nice show of support from telco

      You have been negged by Russians for sure

    Those overseas Russians beyond the propaganda bubble would also appreciate making it easier to call their families and tell about the lies from their government.

    For example, if your family was in an isolated country where they can't get outside news. Imagine being told that the invasion is going well and economic setbacks are only temporary.

    After all, a lot of Russian soldiers allegedly thought they were rescuing Ukraine from Nazism.

      I hear what you are saying but if they have access to the internet they have the ability to research and find out the perspectives of others. Look at many in the US who refuse to believe any news coming from the other side of politics. Let's hope there are enough independent thinkers and people with family/ friends outside the Russian sphere of influence who are giving them a protective that's different and they are willing to listen to as it's coming from someone they trust. Can only hope.

    • Just Google Azov and see

  • I guess the Russians are leaving all the infrastructure intact. They probably want to take it without having to rebuild. Hopefully this means as few civilian casualties as possible.

      check the latest news from yesterday when Russia destroyed broadcasting towers in major cities in Ukraine and do not spread lies.

        Why offer free calls if there is no infrastructure? Seems like a cruel joke by virtue signaling corporations.

        Edit: Also, be very careful about what you read in the news. There is a huge propaganda war going on. Russia and Ukraine are both waging it, but the Ukrainians are winning big time so far. Wait until the dust settles before deciding what to believe.

        • There may be limited infrastructure due to the damage, but limited =/= none at all.
          However free calls/SMS are being provided for surrounding countries as well, which do not have infrastructure damage.

  • This would be the correct link to the terms and conditions of the free calls; https://mobile.woolworths.com.au/mobileupdates
