Virgin and Qualcomm building satellite-based internet provider - great news for Hello Hubs!

Network connectivity will continue to be one of the biggest challanges for building Hello Hub's in disconnected locations. Richard Branson announced today a project to provide worldwide network coverage by a new array of satellites, via his Virgin Group & Qualcomm. We're stoked... more connectivity options = easier Hello Hub builds.

Rapid build, flat pack, 4-post Hello Hub - overturning calculation
