AT&T plans to install a mobile cell phone tower near the West Palm Beach waterfront to help boost cell and data coverage during the five-day event.

The mobile cell tower, known as “Cell on Wheels,” or COW, will be set up near Trinity Place and S. Flagler Drive. AT&T has also also upgraded an existing cell site at the north end of the SunFest site to provide better signal strength.

“Events like this one are full of moments customers want to share through texts, pictures, status updates and phone calls,” said AT&T Florida President Joe York. “We’re working to give them reliable coverage and fast speeds, so they can get the most out of their mobile devices while enjoying the art and music at SunFest.”

SunFest, south Florida’s largest waterfront music and art festival, kicks off Wednesday and runs through May 1.
