Making A Comeback

Phone calls have made a comeback in the pandemic. The nation’s biggest telecommunications providers prepared for a huge shift toward more internet use from home during these days, but what they didn’t expect was an even greater surge in plain old voice calls, a medium that had been going out of fashion for years.

Verizon says calls are increasing drastically each day, and it’s not just the number of calls that has jumped; the length of calls is up 33% from before the outbreak.
