Verizon Wireless Prepares for Super Bowl XL
Posted: 26-Jan-2006 [Source: Verizon Wireless]

[Verizon Wireless activates new equipment to improve digital capacity at Ford Field in Detroit by 300 percent in time for Super Bowl XL on February 5.]

Bedminster, NJ -- With more than 100,000 visitors expected to converge on metropolitan Detroit for the biggest football game of the year, Verizon Wireless is making sure the nation's most reliable wireless network is ready for the big crowds heading for the fun-filled week of football festivities in the Motor City.

In anticipation of the increase in call volume, Verizon Wireless has activated five new permanent cell sites and installed additional equipment on all existing cell sites in downtown Detroit. Additionally, the company will herd two COWs (Cells On Wheels) and corral a COLT (Cell On Light Truck) to surround Ford Field during the week of the game. The COWS and COLT are fully functional, generator-powered mobile cell sites that are designed to enhance wireless capacity in a given area.

The network enhancements will improve Verizon Wireless' digital capacity in and around Ford Field by 300 percent, Cobo Hall by 100 percent and the remainder of downtown Detroit by 25 percent, enabling more customers to use their wireless phones concurrently. The improvements also will enable Verizon Wireless customers to experience fewer dropped calls and clearer reception while talking on their wireless phones, sending TXT and Picture Messages, viewing streaming video or downloading games and ringtones before, during and after the big game.
