Many found it difficult to get service for their cell phones at a recent concert in Arlington.
Wired PR News – The cell phone service of many who attended the recent George Strait concert at the Cowboys Stadium was reportedly disrupted while inside. As reported by WFAA News, many among the 60,000 people who packed the stadium over the weekend experienced problems with their cell phone service due to antennas not being fully put into place.
The Dallas Cowboys’ Brett Daniels is quoted in the report as stating of the massive attempts to communicate with others via cell phone on the historic night, “While everyone may not have gotten out, almost a million people did get through.”
Over 100 cell phone antennas are said to have been built into the Cowboys Stadium, but are not yet configured. Daniels is further quoted as stating of issue, “It’s now just a matter of connecting the wiring and programming the system.”
As noted in the report, the Distributed Antenna System is expected to be completely in place August 1.
