With Maine residents trying to reach their loved ones in Japan, Time Warner Cable is offering a little relief.

Through April 15, calls placed by the company’s residential and business digital phone customers directly to Japan will be free. This also includes calls they may have placed on Friday.

“At Time Warner Cable we are caring members of the communities we serve and we know that in many of those communities right now we have customers worried about family and friends in Japan,” Time Warner Cable Chairman and CEO Glenn Britt said.  “We have seen an increase in the number of calls made by our customers to family, friends and colleagues in Japan who have been touched by the events that occurred.”

Time Warner Cable’s regional spokesman Andrew Russell said there are more than 100,000 digital phone customers in Maine that can take advantage of this program.
