Verizon Wireless Readies Network For South By Southwest Crowds

AUSTIN, Texas, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Verizon Wireless network is ready for the thousands of fans heading to Austin in March to enjoy music, films and interactive media at the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) conference.  Network technicians have prepared to ensure peak performance for Austin residents and festival-goers during SXSW.  Attendees with Verizon Wireless devices can enjoy the event without worrying about the performance of their wireless service.

To prepare for the SXSW events, Verizon Wireless network teams have enhanced coverage and increased capacity at all of the sites covering this event, including the Austin Convention Center, Downtown Austin, 6 th Street and Auditorium Shores.   Additionally, festival-goers flying in and out of Austin-Bergstorm International will have access to Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE mobile broadband network, which is currently available to more than 273 million people in 473 markets across the U.S.

Verizon Wireless customers will also have opportunity to experience ISIS Mobile Wallet, as Austin was one of the two pilot cities selected for the mobile payment app launch in 2012. ISIS Mobile Wallet provides a convenient and secure way for customers to pay for a wide variety of goods at select merchants and is compatible on 10 phones from Verizon Wireless.  

"SXSW is an exciting event in Austin.  We understand how important it is for our customers to be able to capture and share their experiences," said Frank Antonacci, Central Texas region president at Verizon Wireless. "At a large festival or gathering like SXSW, we make enhancing our network and our customers' wireless experience a top priority."
