The fees will be retroactively waived dating back to March 13.

Also, AT&T spokeswoman Ann L. Elsas said they “will not terminate the service of any wireless, home phone or broadband residential or small business customer because of their inability to pay their bill due to disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.”

AT&T said they are providing first responders with “unthrottled connectivity and priority communications” to respond during the public health emergency.

As of Monday, there are 35,241 confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States, according to the latest numbers from Johns Hopkins University.
