Modem to improve African net access
... The BRCK works like a mobile phone, switching between wi-fi and 3G when a fixed line network is down.
Users can also plug in a SIM card to offer a network anywhere in reach of a mobile tower.
The BRCK has an eight-hour battery and also has a cloud-based software which means it can be accessed from anywhere to see how wi-fi and electricity are performing or to manage alerts and applications.
For remote villages where even a mobile signal is hard to find, there is also an antenna to boost signal strength.
