People are connecting
over the phone more than ever
With many states on lockdown or practicing social
distancing due to COVID-19, cell phone users are turning to phone calls to
Verizon reports that they are seeing an average of 800
million wireless calls daily on recent weekdays. That’s nearly twice the volume
of calls they see on Mother’s Day.
In addition to the increased calling, the data also shows
that people are spending more time on their phone calls. AT&T has reported
that wireless voice minutes on Monday were up 39% from what they see on an
average Monday. Wi-Fi calling minutes are also up, at a whopping 78% higher
usage than normal.
With no definitive end to this pandemic in sight, now is
the perfect time to reconnect with loved ones and friends.
Texts are great for short, cold, and quick answers. Right
now, though, without being able to physically connect, emotional connection is
what we need.
Stay safe out there.
