In anticipation of the outdoor festival’s large crowds, AT&T is setting up a mobile cell site to help boost coverage in downtown West Palm Beach.

The cell site has been installed along Clematis Street near Flagler Drive, the company said. The mobile unit provides the coverage and capacity of three individual cell sites.

AT&T is also providing smartphone charging stations for concert goers at its booth inside this year’s event.

“Events like SunFest are full of moments customers want to share through texts, pictures, status updates and phone calls,” said Joe York, AT&T Florida president. “We’re working hard to give them great coverage and fast speeds.”
