The seven-day ride with the torch made use of the Nano Router’s upt to 200Mbps of bandwidth, and the PowerPac2 lithium battery’s ability to charge through USB-C, D-tab and USB.
The ride was part of the #StartYourImpossible movement from Toyota, a sponsor of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, promoting inclusion in sports.
Sanjuan said: “We relied on our TVU Nano Router and PowerPac to keep us online 24/7 through some of the harshest and most remote parts of our trip. We never once lost our stream. Since we were pedaling 100 kilometers a day, it was a huge relief not to have to worry about our connection.”
