Social distancing. Shelter in place. Stay home. These are the phrases we all live by right now. With everyone at home and online, the connectivity we take for granted as being always available is under pressure, trying to deliver everything to everyone virtually, simultaneously and constantly.

So what can service providers do in the face of this chaos?
