IPSTAR In Action in Tacloban After Typhoon Yolanda Hit the Area

DSWD used IPSTAR broadband satellite technology to provide connectivity services to the affected people in Tacloban a day after typhoon Yolanda devastated the area. The two photos above paint a million words to describe how difficult the situation was. IPSTAR technology provided voice VoIP,  and Internet connectivity to the suvivors to inform their families, relatives, love ones and friends of their current situation. The existing telcos were paralyzed due to extremely huge damage brought by the typhoon Yolanda and for several days, it could do nothing except to start clearing up the areas where its telecommunication infrastructures were totaly demolished.
