TSF supports relief efforts in Dominica

Wednesday 4 October 2017 | 10:51 CET | News
Inmarsat-sponsored Telecoms Sans Frontieres (TSF) was on the ground in Dominica to provide emergency telecoms support when the Caribbean was hit by Hurricane Maria, the second category five hurricane within weeks. TSF was also present in Saint-Martin after Hurricane Irma to provide emergency connection to the island. Hurricane Maria hit landfall on 19 September and with Dominica bearing the full force of its 160mph winds, TSF installed an Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) terminal in island's capital Roseau to ensure that vital connectivity was available for the relief community across the city.
