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.
With the help of XCom Global internet devices, our crew on the ground was able to coordinate the help of over 370 volunteers from 22 countries for a combined 18,000 hours of donated labor.
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.
