Cellhire provided connectivity for the BT Red Nose Climb of Kilimanjaro earlier this month.
The nine celebrity climbers, including Cheryl Cole, Fearne Cotton and Chris Moyles, overcame altitude sickness, sub-zero temperatures and exhaustion to reach the summit of Africa’s highest mountain on March 7th.
Cellhire provided the production team with French SIM cards for picture messaging, plus Vodafone World roaming SIMs for voice and text.
“The solution needed to be relatively tailored to accommodate the volumes of picture messaging to websites and voice calls back to the UK from multiple countries. We’re delighted to have been involved in the project” commented Chris Power, Senior Business Development Executive at Cellhire.
