AT&T has announced that it will be enhancing its network near Percy Warner Park in Nashville this weekend for the annual Iroquois Steeplechase on May 11. With thousands of people expected to attend the race, the boost will be a welcome edition to the area.

AT&T has deployed a temporary Mega COW, which is the equivalent of multiple cell sites. This technology will help the increased wireless network demands and provide a more stable 4G LTE experience in the area. The increase experienced with the Mega COW will benefit those who wish to use data and voice services while attending the Iroquois Steeplechase.

“AT&T’s network investment will enable the thousands of Iroquois Steeplechase attendees to use their wireless devices to stay connected at Percy Warner Park through texting, voice calling, sharing photos, and utilizing social media platforms with blazing fast 4G LTE speeds,” said Chris Percy, AT&T’s vice president and general manager of Mobility and Consumer Markets for Tennessee, Kentucky and southern Indiana.

AT&T has dedicated employees who will be on site at Percy Warner Park to monitor the performance and adjust performance as needed. The temporary enhancements are part of AT&T’s ongoing efforts to prepare for and provide the best possible mobile experience during special events like the Iroquois Steeplechase.

This is a great step to keep the growing number of cell phone users connected across Nashville and other areas. With Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram becoming more and more popular, constant connectivity is needed for events such as the Steeplechase. For those watching the race, enjoy and share the experience.
