Verizon Wireless Arms Itself to Meet Basketball Challenge in Dallas

February 24, 2010

(SPORTS TECHNOLOGY)
Verizon (News - Alert) Wireless Network geared up to meet the “basketball” challenge in Dallas. Tens of thousands of basketball fans were assured of good coverage by its networks.

 
Network technicians, who serve as the inspiration for the iconic Verizon wireless Test Man ad Campaign, have worked day and night for weeks on end and ensured peak performance for Dallas residents and fans.
 
In order to combat the spike in voice and data usage in and around Dallas during the Big Game, Verizon has enhanced coverage and increased capacity around the stadium and its vicinity.
 
A recently commissioned, state-of-art distributed antenna system in Arlington, Texas, together with the already robust Verizon Wireless network in place in and around the stadium, proved more than adequate to cater to the increased demand. Spikes in the nature of calls, text messages, picture or video messages, Internet connections and other wireless traffic were handled superbly by Verizon.
 
Verizon Wireless has ceaselessly continued to ramp up its network around Texas. Several new cell sites have been activated in the Dallas area in order to improve digital voice and broadband data services in the popular uptown area.
 
Region President Frank Antonacci said, “Dallas hosts several large events throughout the year, and we want to keep those fans connected. We make significant investments to ensure the Verizon Wireless network will remain superior for visiting fans and local wireless customers.”
 
Verizon Wireless operates the nation’s most reliable and largest wireless voice and 3G data network, and is committed to giving outstanding customer satisfaction, by offering quality products and services.
 
Verizon Wireless and Actsoft, Inc., have announced a joint marketing relationship that makes Actsoft’s suite of GPS-based business management applications available to customers of the nation’s largest and most reliable wireless network.
