AT&T doubles game-day Internet coverage

When University of Mississippi football fans head to campus this season to cheer on the Rebels, they can enjoy stronger connections as they share the moment with friends and family.
AT&T has boosted its mobile Internet coverage at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and the Grove by doubling capacity to the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) it resides on to give customers a better wireless experience before, during and after the game. The DAS at the University of Mississippi is owned and operated by Crown Castle.
“When our customers head out to the Grove and Vaught-Hemingway we want them to have a great network experience on the University of Mississippi campus no matter what they’re doing — making a call, sharing pictures on social media, downloading apps or surfing the Internet,” said Mayo Flynt, president of AT&T Mississippi. “We’ve doubled capacity in our wireless network to help customers stay connected from the moment they reach the Grove until the final play in ‘The Vaught.’”
The network upgrade consists of the addition of a second carrier system and strategically placed antennas that distribute AT&T’s wireless network coverage throughout Vaught-Hemingway Stadium and the Grove. It can provide stronger, more consistent wireless coverage.
