One of the great things about events like this is, of course, the people you meet.
Today we assisted the media staff for the Dutch Solar Car Team to install an Internode NodeMobile 3G Wireless Broadband service into one of their laptops.
As its very hot in Darwin (currently around 35-38 C and humid), we made sure that we kept our fluid levels up as we did this.
They will be the service to upload video of the progress of their team to their web site during the event.
We have brought a few more spare NodeMobile USB sticks in case other teams find them useful too.
We’ve found, on the way up to Darwin, that NodeMobile works really well in each of our overnighting points along the way (Darwin, Katherine, Tennant Creek, Alice Springs, Coober Pedy, Port Augusta).
Here in Darwin, its really exceeded expectations – it just rocks along!
