In Wake of National Disasters Cellular Express Phone Rentals Offers Excellent Communication Solutions
October 30, 2005 -- Hundreds of victims of Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma who found themselves with no means of communicating with friends and relatives turned to Cellular Express Phone Rentals for satellite phone rentals. Satellite phones are ideal in remote areas where cell phones don’t work or when disasters strike and communications are limited.
“Now, days after the last hurricane, it’s apparent that people know that cellular service is one of the first things to go in a hurricane, but luckily satellite service nearly always works,” said company president and founder, Richard Nardone. “We have one of the largest international cellular and satellite rental phone inventories in the
US and every available satellite phone in our inventory was sent out in both the cases of Katrina and Rita. We’ve actually had to purchase dozens more to assure that we will continue to meet the demand.”
Cellular Express Phone Rentals’ main customers generally include international travelers from Fortune 500 companies,
US & International Government Agencies, US Military, Universities and general leisure travelers. However, the need for satellite service has hit closer to home, serving immensely during the past several months as a priceless alternative to the cell phone.

Plus, with Cellular Express Phone Rentals’ prompt delivery service, individuals can have the phone on their doorstep overnight. Satellite phones are perfect for safaris, cruises and any place cellular service is limited or non-existent.
