COVID-19 has had significant impacts on businesses across the globe. As we are getting used to a “new normal,” we are seeing new ways people are changing their businesses to adapt to the pandemic, which will have positive impacts for the future. The telecommunications industry is no exception and has faced many changes of its own. At Solaris Technologies Services, we believe that COVID-19 has changed communication for the better, and here’s why:
Large Investments made by Communication Companies
Big U.S. telecommunication companies are investing heavily in 5G technology. Verizon, AT&T and other mobile companies have accelerated their investments in building 5G networks to accommodate increased demand. For example, since COVID-19 was declared a national emergency, Verizon boosted their capital investment from $500 million to $18.5 billion to enhance the United States’ 5G capabilities. So what is causing this massive change for bigger, faster and more abundant broadband?
COVID-19 Changing the Path for Broadband Networks
Since the pandemic, the way we do business, the way we interact and the way we communicate has all gone digital. Employees now collaborate over Zoom, chat through Slack and attend video conferences. Consumers also want to have less contact, shop online and use curbside services. With a higher demand for internet connectivity, the existing 4G networks and slower internet speeds won’t be able to handle the increasing hunger for faster and more efficient connections.
