Mobile Beacon Launches Disaster Recovery Program to Assist Community Anchor Institutions with Rebuilding After Hurricanes

Mobile Beacon launched Disaster Recovery Programs to help community anchor institutions such as schools, libraries, nonprofits, and healthcare organizations in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina who were affected by the recent hurricanes. The Disaster Recovery Programs are designed to support affected organizations as they work to rebuild and serve their community. These programs are designed to offer wraparound support to new and existing Mobile Beacon customers as they rebuild. The programs will be available for six months until April 2019.

  • Under the Device Replacement Program existing Mobile Beacon customers in FEMA designated disaster zones in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Georgia are eligible replacement devices if their Mobile Beacon hotspot devices were damaged due to the storm. Mobile Beacon will replace any damaged device free of charge even if the device is out of warranty. Customers can contact Mobile Beacon’s customer service team at 401-934-0500 to request a replacement device.
  • Additionally, Mobile Beacon is offering a Disaster Recovery Donation Program to all eligible community anchor institutions in FEMA designated disaster zones. Organizations can request up to 25 donated mobile hotspot devices to help connect their community. Learn more at https://www.mobilebeacon.org/disaster-recovery.

“Mobile Beacon’s mission is to support the broadband needs of community anchor institutions,” Cristina Graham, Program Director at Mobile Beacon, said.  “These recent hurricanes have brought unimaginable damage to the infrastructure of coastal communities in four states. Mobile Beacon wants to support the rebuilding efforts by helping community anchor institutions regain the broadband connectivity needed.”
