Covid-19: People advised to make sure home IT fit for purpose

From Morning Report, 6:19 am on 19 March 2020

The Telecommunications Users Association says people need to make sure their home IT is up to date and fit for purpose as the growing threat from Covid-19 takes grip.

It's expected more and more people may have to work from home either because they have to self-isolate or need to as companies restrict the number of people working closely together in offices.

TUANZ says it believes providers are ready for the extra demand Covid-19 will place on infrastructure.

CEO Craig Young told our reporter Andrew McRae that even though companies have been trialling working remotely, it's now becoming a reality as people either chose to do it or are forced to.
