Verizon is temporarily limiting in-home installs to medical emergencies and critical installations only in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Some customers have reported being told that no in-home installations are available until November.
In keeping "employees and customers safe, we are making every attempt to perform work without going into homes or small businesses," Verizon spokesperson Steve Van Dinter told FOX Business Tuesday.
The move to limit operations comes at a time when network providers are seeing a surge of activity as the coronavirus pandemic has millions of Americans avoiding in-person interaction and, those who can, working from home.
