Company will provide its Internet access rental service at no charge to those heading to Japan or who have arrived in Japan to help the country through this crisis

So much is done via the Internet now. If we can be of assistance by connecting the relief workers to information and each other, we are more than happy to do so.

XCom Global, Inc., a leading provider of low cost wireless Internet access rental services for international travelers, announced today it is offering free Internet access to relief workers who are heading to Japan to aid in disaster recovery. Rental units will be shipped to relief workers in advance of their departure date. Those who are already in Japan or are heading out immediately can pick up rental units in Tokyo at XCom Global’s parent company (Inter Communications Co., Ltd) headquarters.

“I am relieved to say that all of my employees at Inter Communications are safe,” said Seiji Nishimura, CEO, XCom Global, Inc. “I was working in our Tokyo office when the earthquake hit. It was unlike anything I have ever experienced. The devastation in our country is heartbreaking. We appreciate all of the aid that is coming in from countries around the world. So much is done via the Internet now. If we can be of assistance by connecting the relief workers to information and each other, we are more than happy to do so.”

Relief workers still in the United States should contact XCom Global at 1-877-520-8242. Those who are already in Japan can reach Inter Communications at 03-5766-2722. XCom Global’s Internet access rental connection reliability and speed is dependent on the local carrier.
