Thousands of spectators are gathering for the big music festival at Bayfront Park this weekend and the tennis tournament that starts at Crandon Park March 21. AT&T plans to keep the data-hungry crowdsconnected. The company is bringing in a COW, or Cell on Wheels, for each event. The mobile cell sites will help accommodate the extra network traffic generated by all the smartphone users at the events.
AT&T often rolls in COWs for large crowd-drawing events. The additional capacity and coverage provided by a COW bolster voice and Internet connectivity for festival-goers.[ad id=”2764″]
“Events like these are full of moments customers want to share through texts, pictures, status updates and phone calls,” said AT&T Florida President Joe York. “We’re working to give them reliable coverage and fast speeds, so they can get the most out of their mobile devices at the events.”
