A message from Andrès Irlando, President, Public Sector
Valued Federal, State, Local and Education Customers:
With everything that has taken place over the last few weeks, I want to thank you for your dedication and commitment to supporting, protecting and serving our communities. Many of you are leading the charge in the response to the coronavirus, and we are grateful for the opportunity to partner with you.
This pandemic has served as a reminder for why we do what we do: to deliver the solutions, services and expertise that are critical to your missions.
Here is a snapshot on some of the ways we’ve been supporting the public sector in its efforts to respond to COVID-19:
Deploying tablets and smartphones, charging stations and portable cell sites to deliver network coverage at federal, state and local Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs), mobile virus testing sites and quarantine facilities.
Working to solve for the unique work-from-home needs of government employees related to security, bandwidth and compliance.
Responding through the Verizon Response Team, which supports governments and nonprofits 24/7/365, which to-date has responded to nearly 200 requests for additional network coverage, free charging stations, additional equipment and more.
As we continue to adjust to this new and continuously evolving normal, we hope you will continue to call on us to support you and those you serve, and we will continue to rise to the challenge.
