Guangdong Mobile has formally launched its "Appreciation to Guangdong" program, a series of activities including 15 minutes of free long-distance call service for each migrant worker in the province every weekend.
Starting with this free telephone service, Guangdong Mobile plans to help solve some hot social issues and difficulties through its technology platforms and offer benefits to companies, students, farmers and migrant workers in the area. Xu Long, general manager of Guangdong Mobile, says that the company's "Appreciation to Guangdong" program is an extension of its "Thank Guangdong" program that ran last year.
Migrant workers who don't have a mobile phone can come to Guangdong Mobile's Communication 100 Service Halls to make their free calls, while those who have mobile phones can enjoy the free service with a Shenzhouxing card. Li Xinze, general manager of Guangdong Mobile's marketing department, says that Guangdong Mobile will also arrange traveling service vehicles next month from which the migrant workers can make their calls.
In addition, Guangdong Mobile says that it will build 500 Communication 100 Service Halls to provide free internet service for migrant workers.
