Hurricane season is here – are you prepared? We know you rely on your internet to stay informed and connected, especially during a natural disaster. To maintain your service during these events our expert team of Network Engineers monitor reports for developing tropical storms and hurricanes. Once they determine that a significant storm poses a threat, local markets are notified so that they can move into action.
At CLEAR we ensure that our affected markets have the needed supplies, engineering staff and support to handle the storm and minimize the impact to our 4G network. In a case of widespread power outages, our engineers are mobilized with large diesel generators and fuel to keep operations maintained. Our local Field Operations teams work to ensure that the integrity of our network is maintained when you need it most.
