So I thought I’d give some praise where it’s due :-) My wife is having an operation tomorrow at St Georges here in Christchurch and naturally I will be spending a fair amount of time up at the hospital with her over the next few days. We’re currently investigating our options around what mobile broadband provider and device we will purchase, so I’ll be at a bit of a loss tomorrow – well maybe not!
I wandered downstairs to the lads at Snap, and they give me a device to try, unfortunately the sim card was no longer active so it wasn’t going to fly. They did however give me the details of a gentleman to contact at St Georges, who was more than happy to assist. They are currently trialling broadband in rooms (and investigating wifi options for guests) and therefore, all you need is an Ethernet cable and to connect to any website and authenticate and away you go.
Great job Snap, and Great job St Georges!
