Bmobile and Digicel Offer Zero Rated Data Access to UWI Websites
In partnership with local telecommunication providers, Bmobile and Digicel, The UWI St. Augustine Campus is pleased to advise that the providers have agreed to a 3-month waiver of data access charges (zero-rating) for those accessing UWI-affiliated websites on the respective networks.
As part of the Campus’s commitment to its community, particularly current and prospective students, this will remove some of the costs associated with remote learning and access. This zero-rating has already been implemented on the Bmobile network and becomes available from today, Friday April 17 on the Digicel network. This service will continue on both networks until July 10.
Please note that the intent of this service is as follows:
PERSONS CAN USE THEIR BROADBAND PLAN AT HOME TO ACCESS THE ZERO-RATED SITES LISTED BELOW. SINCE THAT IS A SPECIFIED AMOUNT PER MONTH, NO CHANGE IS EXPECTED IN COST.
PERSONS USING THEIR SMARTPHONES MUST HAVE A DATA PLAN. WHEN THEY ACCESS THE-ZERO RATED SITES, THEY WILL NOT BE CHARGED.
PERSONS CAN USE THEIR PHONES AS A HOTSPOT AT HOME TO ACCESS INTERNET IF NEEDED. ONLY THE SITES LISTED BELOW WILL BE ZERO RATED.
Please note the list of Zero-rated websites below:
St. Augustine Campus
Cave Hill Campus
The Campus thanks these service providers for their support and their commitment to facilitating connectivity at this time.
