Help for Hurricane Victims

In the days following Hurricane Sandy, we have been staying in touch with many of our friends, customers and partners throughout the northeast who have been without essentials such as power, water, or internet. Similar to when we experienced the tornadoes and natural disasters near our Digium headquarters in the southeast, we have been encouraged by how quickly people have rallied together to help.
