This weekend, hundreds of thousands of visitors will descend upon Las Vegas for the big game.
To support this massive influx of people for what usually is the most-watched television event of the year, Cox Communications is providing free access to its extensive virtual Wi-Fi hotspot network in the Las Vegas metro area from February 1 through February 12, as well as powering the connections within Allegiant Stadium.
The free connectivity will facilitate the flurry of communications sure to take place this weekend, with everybody from celebrities to out-of-town game-goers to stadium workers counting on the safe, reliable, and fast service.
In addition to the massive Wi-Fi network that spans Las Vegas, Allegiant Stadium holds more than 227 miles of fiber optic cable and 1,700 hotspots powered by Cox. Additionally, the company will connect 2,200 in-stadium screens and 75,000 feet of digital displays for the 65,000 attendees. That same network will be connecting even more fans at home.
“Keeping people connected is what Cox does every day,” said Cox Las Vegas Market Vice President Janet Uthman. “This is a proud moment for our community and so many who’ve worked tirelessly to ensure we live up to our reputation as the ‘Sports and Entertainment Capitol of the World’. Free access to our Wi-Fi Hotspot network will enable residents and visitors to share in the celebration.”
Most Cox internet customers already have free access to their Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the company’s southern Nevada service area and over four million Cox hotspots around the country.
Cox is no stranger to providing the connectivity for massive events. The company has delivered connectivity for events like widely-attended CES for the last ten years, as well as powering smart cities across the country.
Whoever wins Sunday’s game, attendees will be able to share their experience thanks to Cox’s fast, reliable, and safe Wi-Fi network.
