So what did the carrier do to the race track to improve connectivity? Along with a third party wireless provider, AT&T added antennas throughout the grandstand, suites, and premium seating areas at Churchill Downs. Six Compact A/C Radio Telephone Sites (CARTs) have been placed in the Churchill Downs infield and two COWs are in the area surrounding the track. No, these are not for a post race feast. The COWs are actually mobile Cell on Wheels that offer added network capacity. AT&T often has COWs driven in to events where the added capacity is forecast to be needed.
The 139th running of the Kentucky Derby will take place May 4th and is the first leg of horse racing's Triple Crown.
