FCC Keep Americans Connected Pledge

 

All four of the major United States cellular carriers — AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon — have signed on to the FCC’s Keep Americans Connected Pledge. Under this agreement, carriers have agreed to take the following action for at least the next 60 days:

  • Not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to the disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Waive any late fees that any residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstances related to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Open its Wi-Fi hotspots to any American who needs them.
 
Meanwhile, T-Mobile has announced its own set of efforts to help customers stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Starting immediately, all T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile customers will have unlimited smartphone data for the next 60 days. T-Mobile will also “soon” give customers an additional 20GB mobile hotspot services.
