As Coronavirus Moves School And Work Online, Can Broadband Internet Keep Up?

As schools across Arizona and the rest of the country close down, and more and more businesses are having their workers telecommute to avoid spread of the coronavirus. That’s putting renewed attention on broadband capabilities and access.
