In an effort to show support for the brave individuals helping to battle the coronavirus, AT&T is offering three months of free phone service to nurses and physicians in the U.S. The announcement was made by actor John Krasinski on his popular new YouTube show “Some Good News.” In the episode, Krasinski spoke with Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz and Boston-area healthcare workers before making the announcement.

The actor himself was a major part of the decision itself, as AT&T reached out to him about how to assist those on the medical frontlines. When Krasinski suggested they pay for healthcare workers’ phone bills for a month, the company upped the ante to three months.

AT&T’s new offer will provide healthcare workers with three months of free service through their FirstNet network. The network was made possible through a collaboration with the First Responder Network Authority of the U.S. government, and was created in order to boost data for first responders.

Eligible users can take advantage of this wireless service offer by completing an application online or visiting an AT&T store with an organization ID.


Already on a wireless plan? No problem.

While new subscribers can take advantage of this generous offer, healthcare workers who already have a FirstNet Mobile – Responder plan will also have access to the service credit. Users with the preexisting plan will have the credit applied for their device of choice’s line of service.

Additionally, healthcare workers who already use AT&T service can switch their line over to FirstNet.

In addition to the free coverage being offered by AT&T, the company is also extending a $200 credit towards a new FirstNet Ready smartphone for new subscribers.

Keep in mind, however, that this credit is only applied with a commitment to a 30-month service agreement.
