As forecasters predict another busy storm season on the heels of record‑breaking hurricane activity in 2020, the Un‑carrier is equipped with more disaster‑response resources than ever.
Hurricane season officially runs from June 1 through November 30, but the Un-carrier prepares year-round to ensure we are ready to help customers, first responders and local authorities stay connected when it matters most. Last year's 30 named storms were the most-ever on record, and forecasters have already predicted above-average storm activity again this year. T-Mobile takes a rock-solid approach to preparation and response, hoping for the best but planning for the worst.
As people adjust to life during the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that this year’s hurricane season may be unique as T-Mobile and Sprint customers will rely on our teams and networks to maintain the important connectivity that is helping them work, learn and continue to communicate with loved ones during the various stages of the current shutdown.
As we do each year, we continue to work with internal and external partners, including the National Weather Service to monitor all potential storm activity and prepare our response plans.
