Network Ready for Large Austin Crowds

The Verizon 4G LTE 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 devices can enjoy the event without worrying about the performance of their wireless service.

To prepare for the events, the Verizon network teams have enhanced coverage and increased capacity at all of the sites covering this event, including the Austin Convention Center, Downtown Austin, 6th Street and Auditorium Shores.   Austin is also one of more than 400 markets nationwide in which Verizon has deployed XLTE, bringing double the 4G LTE bandwidth and greater peak speeds than before for customers.

“This is an exciting event in Austin.  We understand how important it is for our customers to have the ability to capture and share their experiences, especially at such a dynamic, tech-driven event,” said Lee Maschmann, executive director, Network for Central Texas, Verizon Wireless. “We go above and beyond to enhance our network because for us, reliability is a commitment and customer experience is a top priority.”
