Orange Spain hands out 2,200 connected tablets to Madrid hospitals

Thursday 26 March 2020 | 10:38 CET | News
Orange Spain said its Foundation has begun to distribute 2,200 tablets with 4G or WI-FI connections free of charge to the main Madrid hospitals treating patients with coronavirus. The devices come with pre-installed applications for videoconferences and communication, allowing patients to keep in touch with relatives during their recovery. Orange's move follows similar gestures from Masmovil, with Telefonica installing high-speed telecommunications networks at a temporary field hospital in a Madrid conference centre and 11 hotels throughout the capital.
