AT&T deployed three mobile charging stations in Miami to help those left without power by Hurricane Irma stay connected.
The company set up a large charging station at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition Center exclusively for several hundred Irma evacuees sheltered there by the American Red Cross.
The large mobile charging station can charge up to 60 devices at a time. AT&T also gave out more than 400 AT&T PREPAID devices with 30 days of service to evacuees at the shelter. After 30 days, the recipients can choose to get more prepaid service or not, but the device is theirs to keep. AT&T also set up a Wi-Fi hotspot at the shelter for evacuees.
AT&T also set up mobile charging stations at Robert King Towers in Miami, a large senior center, and in Coconut Grove, just outside the Miami Dade College Gibson Education Center.
Additionally, AT&T welcomed anyone without power to stop into one of the company’s South Florida stores to charge their devices.
