As the U.S. responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cable industry is committed to ensuring that Americans will remain connected during this unprecedented crisis. Cable internet service providers are intensely focused on providing superior network performance and constantly evaluating how networks will handle the increased demand.
In addition to delivering fast and reliable internet service, NCTA member companies have announced new measures to expand internet access, especially for low-income households and families with students that are now learning from home. Additionally, every member company participated in the FCC’s Keep Americans Connected Pledge to keep consumers connected while most states were enforcing stay at home orders.
NCTA member companies also provided over $100 million in public service advertising through June to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and educate consumers about the impact of the pandemic.
Finally, NCTA and its member companies are working closely with federal, state and local government officials to share appropriate information and keep informed of new developments.
