"The disruption of COVID is felt across the entire world. Cities feel this impact in many ways—how residents commute, work, dine, shop, and more. While the pandemic has ground to a halt some infrastructure projects in metro areas, the adoption of smart city technology is still of high interest. Telecom industry veteran Keith Pennachio, Chief Strategy Officer and EVP of SQUAN, shared his insights on COVID’s effect on smart cities. 
“There has been some slowdown in major cities, like New York, which shut down early. Some projects are on hold, mostly in building. But we’ve seen an increase in fiber. Overall, not a lot of delays in infrastructure,” Pennachio said."
