Three of the four semi-final teams and their support staff use Cellhire’s products and services, and Cellhire expects to have handled some 50 terabytes of data by all its customers in Russia by the end of the tournament.

Global telecommunications provider Cellhire is providing mobile connectivity to semi-finalists England, France and Belgium at the 2018 World Cup semi-finals in Russia this week [July 10th and July 11th], and wishes them all luck.

Cellhire has already provided thousands of 4G voice/video and dataconnections to many of the World Cup teams and their support staff, global media organisations and attendees at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia since it kicked off last month. Teams and attendees have benefitted from secure, high-speed data connections and reliable, low cost calls provided by Cellhire.

TV and radio broadcasters, along with print and online newspapers, are utilising Cellhire’s SIM cards, smartphones, MiFi devices (portable, highly secure wireless routers) and other value-added telecoms and services.

The company will provide the same service to whichever of England, France or Belgium reach the World Cup Final, as well as to media organisations and attendees at the event. Cellhire will do likewise for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan next year. Cellhire has a long-established presence in Japan and is already working on plans for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

“We’re really honoured and excited to be supporting the best football teams and media organisations in the world. The volume of data that customers have used at the event so far has been astronomical and is expected to peak around 50 terabytes by the end of the tournament,” says Cellhire CEO Martyn Stevens.

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

Stevens added,

“In total, we have provided many tens of thousands of connections at major events, allowing the media to have fast, reliable and secure voice, video and data communications links to their audiences”
