Disaster Risk Reduction Project
- Location: Villages in Catanduanes Island in Philippines
- Equipment: BigBoost repeater system
These bigboost systems were installed in remote villages in the Philippines to ensure mobile signal during potential climate disasters.
The bigboost is installed high up on the hilltop where it can receive a mobile signal.
It amplifies the signal and beams it down in the nearby villages in the valleys, where normally there is poor signal.
This project was a success and is a test case for other villages suffering from poor cellular coverage.
