Kymeta provided Internet access to Puerto Rico during recovery efforts

Kymeta–the communications company making good on the promise of global, mobile connectivity–partnered with Intelsat and Liberty Puerto Rico to reconnect communities across Puerto Rico when communications and power were severed by Hurricane Maria, the company said.

Three Kymeta-enabled vehicles joined a disaster relief caravan that crisscrossed the island of Puerto Rico from October through December 2017. The vehicles were equipped with Kymeta KyWayâ„¢ flat panel, beam-forming, electronically steered satellite terminals.

Despite the lack of any electrical power or cellular service, the low power-consuming terminals provided Internet access using the vehicles to power the communications system.
