The XCom Global mobile hotspots kept our physicians, who were caring for 500 survivors in Ishinomaki, communicating via Skype and e-mail and documenting the care via electronic medical records.
We are so grateful to have the use of XCom Global mobile hotspots in the Philippines. As you can imagine, being able to connect online is critical in the field. In the past we have relied on satellites for Internet access, which can be expensive and temperamental. XCom Global’s mobile hotspot devices provided us with the ability to reliably access specific, up-to-date information that our teams required.
Having just returned from deployment in the Philippines and experienced 1st hand the difficulties experienced by a severely damaged infrastructure – the Wi-Fi hotspots provided to the ShelterBox response teams by XCom Global, made it possible for us to communicate with teams located on different islands affected by the the Typhoon, as well as with our Head Quarters back in the UK.
