T9-1-1 is an emergency texting service for deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired subscribers to communicate with a 9-1-1 call centre in an emergency.
Customers with speech or hearing impairment can use TTY or another communication device for the deaf (TDD) to make calls.
IP Relay uses the familiarity of online chat applications to make communication easier for people who are hearing or speech impaired.
If you are unsatisfied with your wireless service, there may be an opportunity for you to cancel it without incurring any termination fees or other penalties.
A person with a disability that limits their device use or increases their reliance disproportionately on voice, data, or text may be eligible for a 50% discount off their monthly wireless plan and additional billable wireless features and services. This same discount can also be extended to one caregiver or family member.
To receive the Wireless Special Needs Discount, download and complete the form.
The Wireless Terminology series is part of the on-going collaboration between service providers and the DDBHH community.
