NEW YORK, N.Y– With recent increases in telecommuting and online learning, our networks stand ready to serve customers at work, at home and remotely—including first responders and those protecting the public—when critical connectivity is needed most. Since the emergence of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the company has not seen a measurable increase in data usage—despite some businesses, schools and other organizations now asking employees to work remotely and students to take classes online.
