Verizon Says Network is Ready for Super Bowl Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Super Dome

According to Verizon, the Verizon Wireless network is ready for the tens of thousands of football fans heading to the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome for Super Bowl XLVII Feb. 3. Network technicians have been preparing for the past year to ensure peak performance for hometown customers and visiting fans during the festivities around, and during, the Super Bowl.

In anticipation of significantly elevated usage levels in voice and data call volume in and around the Super Dome, Verizon Wireless network teams have enhanced coverage and increased capacity in and around the Dome, at all Super Bowl-related venues, as well as all thoroughfares leading to and from these locations.

The company already has a system in place at the site of Super Bowl XLVII with a state-of-the-art distributed antenna system to support large crowds. This system strengthens the already robust Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network in and around the Super Dome for the anticipated surge in calls, text messages, picture and video messages, internet connections and other wireless traffic during the biggest game in professional sports in the U.S.

"We heavily invest in our network year round to make certain the Verizon Wireless network remains superior, and to give all of our customers - residents or visiting fans - the most access to our advanced services and technologies," said Krista Bourne - president, Houston/Gulf Coast Region, Verizon Wireless. "We are proud to play a role in the 10th Super Bowl in the City of New Orleans, and offer our customers uninterrupted service throughout the celebration."

Verizon Wireless has continued to ramp up its network around New Orleans. In 2010 Verizon Wireless launched the world's first large-scale 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network in New Orleans. Since 2011, Verizon Wireless has installed more than $70 million in network enhancements in New Orleans and south Louisiana to further boost its high speeds and strengthen coverage as part of a national network investment exceeding $70 billion.
