As many of our regular projects and responsibilities have been put on hold, we will continue to work around the clock to ensure that we are making the best decisions for our employees and customers.
The Lehigh Valley's surrounding emergency infrastructures, including local hospitals and major health networks, are depending on us to provide continued, reliable service and connectivity. Work-from-home personnel and small businesses need SECTV to be able to serve their customers, while families are counting on us to help entertain and educate their youth during this ongoing self-quarantine period.
