Cellhire plans to keep providing mobile data connections for other global entertainment events in the future

Cellhire provided 11,000 mobile data connections at this year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing China.

Alongside data, the mobile and IoT communications specialists provided a voice service activated on request to the organisers, media, athletes and attendees.

The service enabled the global media to broadcast and report in real-time at the event through data bundles supplied via SIM cards, as well as mobile hotspots, smartphones and other telecoms services.


This comes months after Cellhire provided a similar service at last year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo, via 12,000 mobile data connections.

Cellhire will offer the same suite of services at the 2022 Fifa World Cup later this year in Qatar, partnering up with local network provider and event supporter Ooredoo.

Commenting on connecting up events, Cellhire UK managing director Matt Bennett said: “Providing secure mobile data connections for use in China helped to protect user privacy and mitigate risk to personal data.

“We have an excellent track record in the global sports and entertainment fields for providing secure data connections and telecom solutions through the close relationships we have with network providers around the world.”
