The global spread of COVID-19 impacts us all.

Now, more than ever, we need to stay connected, especially as so many around the globe work to slow the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing. To help keep you connected to your community, Qualcomm continues to focus on delivering critical wireless technologies like 5G.

Thank you, Qualcomm employees.

We appreciate how well our employees have responded to this global challenge. To those working from home, thank you for staying focused and connected. To our onsite critical and support staff, thank you for respecting the new safety measures we have in place. Thanks to the remarkable efforts of our business, product, operations, engineering, and support groups, we’re able to maintain our commitments to our customers, partners, and shareholders while keeping everyone safe.

Qualcomm’s efforts to erase the Homework Gap.

The global pandemic has forced schools around the globe to move online. But millions of students lack broadband internet and the devices necessary to access their online schoolwork. These students now fall into the homework gap and are unable to continue their education. Qualcomm supports emergency federal funding to help keep all students on track with connectivity and devices.
