Family and friend relationships are all about togetherness, but during this unprecedented time in the world it's challenging to be with the ones you love. In a time when we must try to stay indoors, away from friends, family, and the public at large, it has been more difficult than ever to find ways to connect.
Since health and safety is the number one priority, and social distancing is the way in which that is achieved, we have had to get creative in how we express our appreciation for each other while not in person. Finding new ways to be together with those we are normally accustomed to seeing has been a challenge to come to terms with.
Thankfully, we have digital communication to help us keep in touch.
Virtual gatherings have become the norm these last few months, and we rely heavily on our internet service for those connections to be as strong and reliable as they can be. With video, you need to be sure that your experiences, whether work or personal, are seamless and fast. A slow internet can mean delays, which lead to frustration, and possibly even missing out on moments you just don’t want to miss. That’s why AT&T Fiber can be a great solution for strong internet1.
Since the world has largely gone digital in so many ways, you want to be sure you have a secure internet connection day to day. With AT&T Fiber, you get a faster internet experience with 20x upload speeds than cable2, strong Wi-Fi in your entire home3 and unlimited data—with new plan options and low prices to fit you and your family’s needs.
How else does a strong internet connection help make day-to-day life easier? The internet is keeping our connections to other people strong through chat, video, text, and even gaming, which can all demand a lot of data. Teachers are continuing to educate children through distance, an essential social system we never dreamed we’d have to reconsider. It is now all done virtually through video. A strong internet connection also allows you to see each other’s faces on video, and keep little details of expression alive through sight and sound. Services like Zoom, FaceTime, Messenger, Skype, Google Hangouts, Slack, are helping us with that.
And helping you stay entertained? The Internet has us covered. Streaming content on HBO Max, Netflix, Disney+, ESPN, Hulu, Spotify, YouTube and so many more have emerged as the titans of a tough year, helping to create great memories through the art of stories. All of these options are made possible because of the internet connections we have.
While we may not be able to see many of those we love in person this year, let a strong digital connection be fortified with AT&T Fiber. The benefits, even when not in person, can be felt every day of the year.
