Because a lot of Americans are out of work and an estimated 16.8 million American workers, or 11% of the US labor force, filed for unemployment in the last three weeks and small businesses are suffering economic losses, over 700 of the nations broadband and telecommunications companies signed a pledge to the FCC to not disconnect services from families, individuals and small businesses that cannot pay, and to waive fees.

Some wireless networks have opened up their infrastructure to allow for free Wi-Fi access as well. If you are affected and get a disconnect notice, contact your provider and explain your situation. If you have been disconnected, reach out and ask that you be connected.

A lot of children are home relying on distance learning and need access to their broadband, wireless and wireline services.  Similarly, doctors appointments are going online and the only access to doctor’s appointments and the like are through telemedine and online appointments.

Here is a copy of the pledge signed as part of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s “Keep Americans Connected” Initiative.

The Keep Americans Connected Pledge reads as follows:
