The Coronavirus has led the world into full-blown crisis mode. This has made multiple businesses, schools and other companies to shut down their operations until further notice. Quarantine has been set for many cities across the globe. This had led many families to go without pay due to work closures.
Thankfully, Internet providers have made it their mission to allow customers to keep their internet on during this difficult time. This also applies to the users who aren’t able to pay the monthly balance.
According to Axios, a journalist company:
“Companies that adhere to Pai’s “Keep Americans Connected Pledge” commit for the next 60 days to:
- Not terminate service to any residential or small business customer because of an inability to pay bills due to coronavirus disruptions.
- Waive late fees that customers incur because of changes in their economic circumstances related to the pandemic.
- Open Wi-Fi hotspots to those in need.
“I don’t want any American consumers experiencing hardships because of the pandemic to lose connectivity,” Chairman Pai said in a statement.”
This outcome will allow people to work, or school, from home for the next 60 days. Over 60+ companies, such as T-Mobile, Verizon, Comcast and more have joined in with the FCC.
