Cellhire USA launches Japanese wireless data card

New York, NY, August 28, 2003 — Cellhire USA LLC, the world’s pre-eminent supplier of international wireless rental solutions, has announced the introduction of a wireless data card designed specifically for use in Japan. The data card offers clients a simple and hassle-free method of connecting to e-mail and the Internet virtually anywhere in Japan.

Data cards offer travelers a convenient and cost-effective way of staying in touch while visiting Japan. The card is set at a fixed price so customers pay a flat rate with unlimited usage. The high-speed wireless connection operates on Japan’s fastest data network at speeds up to 128kbps. The data card plugs directly into the PC slot of the user’s laptop, removing the need for other wireless devices.

“Anyone traveling to Japan knows how long they will be traveling just from the airport to get into the city,” says Jay Chalnick, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development of Cellhire USA. “The data card is a perfect way to kill some time and knock out the e-mails you have received during the long flight over.”

Japanese data cards complement Cellhire’s existing Japanese phone rental. Japanese phone rentals include a local mobile number, English-character display and free incoming calls. “Now our clients can take advantage of both wireless voice and data solutions while visiting Japan,” says Jon Grabow, Cellhire’s Senior Vice President of Sales. “There are no more excuses for being out of the office,“ he adds. “Indeed, Cellhire is committed to keeping clients connected, anywhere.”

Cellhire USA provides phones for 42nd World Archery Championships

Cellhire USA recently supplied over 100 wireless phones and 2-way radios at the largest World Championships ever in the sport of archery. Hundreds of archers from over 70 countries competed in the event, which took place at Van Cortlandt Park in Bronx, NY in July 2003.

The World Archery Championships is just one competition that NYC 2012 – the non-profit committee leading New York’s bid for the 2012 Olympic Games – is holding this summer. The International Archery Federation (FITA), USA Archery, the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and the New York City Sports Commission (NYCSC) worked together in bringing this event to New York. The competition served as an Olympic qualifier and the winners will compete at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.

Cellhire’s services made it easy for the Championships’ staff to communicate with each other while on site. Cellhire hopes to supply equipment for the other competitions taking place this summer such as the New York Water Polo FINA World League Super Final. Randi Heller, Business Development Manager of Cellhire USA said “Being able to support international competitions is a great opportunity for Cellhire. Cellhire anticipates that athletes will also be interested in phone and data rental services since their phone won’t operate in North America. Like international travelers, these athletes will be away from home and want to keep in touch with their families and friends while away. It is worthwhile to take a Cellhire phone since phone calls are much easier and less expensive than dealing with hotel and pay phones.”

Cellhire is dedicated to delivering high-quality, cost-effective and customer-focused solutions and is proud to support NYC 2012. Cellhire USA is excited at the prospect of providing wireless solutions for future athletic events including the finest of them all, the Olympic Games.
