“Our thoughts are with the people of Belgium and our customers who have friends and family there,” the company said on its website. “We’re going to credit our wireline and wireless customers for all calls and text messages to Belgium from March 22-28.”

The company said it will waive or credit charges incurred for landline and mobile phones. Text message fees will also be waived, it said.

“As with any emergency, text messaging is recommended due to the possibility of network congestion in the local area,” AT&T wrote on its website.
