Verizon Enhances Coverage and Capacity in Razorback Stadium


FAYETTEVILLE – Fans attending the Arkansas/Texas Tech game at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium will enjoy an even better wireless experience when calling, texting, surfing the web and posting to social media.

In preparation for the 2015 football season, Verizon expanded and upgraded its technology within the stadium. A new and improved Distributed Antenna System provides Verizon customers with enhanced coverage and greater capacity when tens of thousands of Hog fans want to share exciting plays and news of big wins.

“With the ever-increasing use of data, we work to stay ahead of the demand so our customers will continue to have a great wireless experience,” said Leo Perreault, executive director of network for Verizon’s South Central Region. “In a fast-paced, competitive environment, the last thing our customers want to wait on is their wireless network, so we’re staying ahead of the game.”

In addition, Verizon continues to enhance its network by installing XLTE technology across Arkansas and the nation, providing additional capacity to its 4G LTE network. Verizon was the first wireless carrier to bring 4G LTE technology to Arkansas in 2011 and completed implementation of its network in the state 18 months later. In August, Seattle-based RootMetrics ranked Verizon’s wireless network in Arkansas as the leader in overall network performance among wireless service providers in the U.S.
