Point-2-point link in Santa Fe; sharing internet in Bantayan,

During the last week of January a couple of newly arrived Disaster Tech Lab volunteers (Roberto & Frank) worked together with Sandy on building a long awaited Point-2-Point link in Santa Fe which would function to share the available internet access from the VSAT unit based at the Oxfam building with other NGO’s on the island.

In addition to this they also installed a 3G -> WiFi routers at the gymnasium, mayors office and at the shop where the BVERT volunteers congregate in during their breaks. Lastly they also installed a laptop for public use at the shop.
