LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- Fireworks and airplanes will not be the only thing in abundance in downtown Louisville this weekend.
AT&T is boosting capacity on its network to ensure that customers at Thunder Over Louisville are not grounded by wireless traffic overload.
The service provider has set up two Cells on Wheels towers to provide additional network capacity in the area. The extra capacity will boost voice and mobile Internet performance for users across the city over the weekend. The mobile cell sites are set up for large events across the country to handle the extra wireless traffic.
"We want to enable the thousands of spectators in attendance to use their wireless devices to capture the memories made and stay connected," said AT&T Kentucky President Mary Pat Regan. "The mobile cell sites we've set up at the event will help us provide a better mobile Internet experience during a great event."
