Tamar Hersko already had a full life when the coronavirus outbreak impacted her northern New Jersey community.

When her kids school closed, the personal trainer found herself with three young kids at home 24/7.

Managing distance learning for children in grades one, three and four, all at the same time, would be a lot for anyone, but you won’t hear a negative word from Tamar.

“Luckily, I got an incredible schedule from the school on virtual learning.”

All of the kids and Tamar rely on the internet for their schooling, business, communication and entertainment. With five power users, they require significant bandwidth.

“We have two on iPads, one on a desktop computer, I’m on Instagram or on my phone and we’re using all of it at the same time.”

While many things in the world are uncertain and changing quickly, the reliable fast speeds of Verizon Fios have helped Tamar and her family make a difficult transition look easy.

“Everything has been going really smoothly. I cannot even imagine what life would be like without the internet. I am so grateful that we have it and that it’s so fast. Thank god for Verizon.”
