Verizon Wireless Readies Network For Large Austin Crowds

Stocks in this article: VZ

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 28, 2014 /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 conference.  Network technicians have prepared to ensure peak performance for Austin residents and festival-goers.  Attendees with Verizon Wireless devices can enjoy the event without worrying about the performance of their wireless service.

To prepare for the 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's 4G LTE network, which is the largest in the nation and covers more than 97 percent of Americans.

Verizon Wireless customers will also have opportunity to use Isis Mobile Wallet, as Austin was one of the more established markets for the mobile payment app. Isis provides a convenient and secure way for customers to pay for a wide variety of goods at select merchants and is compatible on 18 phones from Verizon Wireless.  

"This 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 Lee Maschmann, Central Texas Executive Director for Network at Verizon Wireless. "At a large festival or gathering, we put great efforts into enhancing our network because customer experience is a top priority for us."
