“The portable unit was quickly deployed by our crew and the technical support was very helpful and available. We used it for about two months and the link was very stable and dependable, we never experienced any slowdowns or disconnections during that period. We were very pleased with the overall experience and we will use a SCOUT unit the next time we need an Internet and phone connection remotely!”
Maxim Belleau, Technical Electronics Supervisor, Abitibi Geophysics Inc.
