AT&T Installs DAS at CenturyLink Field to Increase Mobile Coverage

In its effort to bring their customers great mobile broadband, AT&T has deployed a DAS at CenutryLink Field, the home of the Seattle Seahawks. The installation of the DAS is meant to enhance the customer experience throughout the facility.

A DAS installation consists of multiple strategically-placed antennas that distribute AT&T’s wireless network coverage throughout CenturyLink Field, providing for more efficient management of cellular capacity in heavily-trafficked areas, such as sports venues,” AT&T explains in a press release.

DAS is a system used to provide better cell coverage to customer in a specific geographic location. The CenturyLink Field DAS installation is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks.

“When our customers head out to the stadium to cheer on the home team, we want them to have a great network experience throughout the game,” said Bob Bass, Washington President, AT&T. “With initiatives like Project VIP, we’re continuing to invest in the network, and providing enhanced cellular coverage at CenturyLink Field is just one way that we’re investing in Washington.”
