Ready for Hurricane Season?

What one mobile carrier has been up to.

June 1 was the official start of hurricane season. I have to say that like the wildfire season, I would not be surprised if we start seeing hurricanes and tropical storms popping up earlier and hanging around later beyond the normal designated season of June 1-Nov. 30.

I get pitches all the time from different companies hawking their wares, but I thought T-Mobile deserved this shoutout for what they have done to improve their response capabilities: “When Connections Matter Most, T‑Mobile is Ready.”

I also noted their “beyond line of sight” announcement for operating a drone up to 77 miles away. That is the next big hurdle to jump over — but, it is coming.

Last year I also did a Disaster Zone podcast that you might want to check out: “T-Mobile’s Emergency Response Team.” It explains how they respond with people and equipment to disasters.
