America’s Wireless Companies Respond to COVID-19: September 18th Update .
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues on, the wireless industry remains steadfast in its effort to ensure communities and healthcare workers across the country are connected to the resources they need. Take a look and see how wireless companies lent a virtual helping hand this week:
- T-Mobile is working to get school districts signed up for its Project 10 Million to help end the homework gap and ensure K-12 households have the connectivity they need as school years start virtually due to COVID-19.
- AT&T employees and interns are directly supporting the pandemic response through the Project SAFE initiative by printing and delivering quality face shields to hospitals for first responders and frontline workers.
- Qualcomm is providing monetary relief and innovative resources to local and global pandemic response efforts as the demand for telemedicine and distance learning continues to grow due to COVID-19.
- Cisco is helping the city of Buffalo, N.Y. continue to provide residents access to government resources as the pandemic forced 311 call center operations to go virtual this summer.
Now more than ever, wireless is playing a critical role in keeping us connected to our family and friends, our jobs, our schools and our communities, and we are proud of our members and the industry for their tireless efforts in these trying times. We will continue to share our members’ stories here and on the CTIA website.
