Free Tools & Apps You Can Add To Your Repository amid Coronavirus

The COVID-19 pandemic is consuming everything it sees in its way. From knocking down budding businesses to unemployment rates soaring high and escalating all over the world, defining the crisis as something ‘hopeless’ is probably an understatement.

The burden on the internet is burgeoning in the U.S. as more and more people are staying at home; remote work is the norm and so is remote education. It’s not set in stone that the internet will never collapse. Therefore, amid this growing worldwide crisis, many Fortune 500 companies, software houses, and businesses belonging to varied niche have pitched in and lent a hand.

A prime example is of internet service providers across the U.S. that have waived data caps and some have even introduced internet plans for low-income households and students. Some ISPs like WOW offers already provider affordable internet plans, while some are also waiving their contract terms.
