The recent Tour de France cycle race through Yorkshire was a huge success. Millions of people turned out to watch the race along its route, and millions more watched the race on television.
Supporting that success behind the scenes was Primetech (UK) Ltd, a leading UK developer and provider of mobile satellite broadband and other high tech communications solutions. Primetech has been supplying fire and rescue services, police forces, government departments and businesses with mobile satellite broadband and other communications solutions for many years,
Given the remoteness of many of the roads along which the Tour de France was due to travel, and the lack of comprehensive 3G and 4G mobile phone coverage in these areas, it was decided that only mobile satellite broadband systems could provide the kind of comprehensive communications coverage required.
