Working Together to Ensure Americans are Wirelessly Connected During COVID-19 .
COVID-19 has created considerable challenges for our country and our cities and towns, and protecting the health and safety of our communities remains paramount. Wireless networks are a crucial part of that effort: first responders, patients needing virtual healthcare, children learning remotely, and employees fortunate to work from home, to name a few, all rely on wireless in these difficult times.
To meet America’s increased demand for connectivity, the wireless industry needs to continue deploying network infrastructure, including in areas where we see new demand driven by COVID-19. We also recognize the challenges and constraints that states and municipalities and their employees now face. At the same time, we share a common goal: ensuring that wireless facilities can be deployed efficiently so we can meet the greater demand for connectivity without creating more burdens on localities.
