Mobile Special Events

In today’s connected world consumers expect reliable mobile phone access will be readily available. However, at an event with a large crowd gathered in one location, high call volumes and data usage can cause issues with call connectivity and slower data speeds than usual.

Events such as music festivals, sporting events and agricultural shows attract tens of thousands of visitors and generate traffic volumes comparable to the traffic normally carried in a medium-sized city, which is generally served by multiple mobile base stations.
