    Company Provides Exclusive Coverage at Four Casinos


    KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Cingular Wireless, the nation's largest wireless company announced today it has turned on an in- building wireless system at four major casinos in Atlantic City, including Bally's, Wild Wild West, the Claridge and Caesars. The company is the only wireless carrier to provide wireless coverage inside these four casinos.
    "This is the largest in-building wireless system of its kind in Atlantic City," said Dan Lafond, Cingular Wireless' vice president and general manager for greater Philadelphia. "We've already heard from our customers about how thrilled they are to use their Cingular service inside these casinos. This is another example of Cingular's continuing efforts to provide our customers with the best wireless experience where they want it the most."

    Over the next few weeks, Cingular Wireless has plans to turn on an in- building wireless system at the Borgata Hotel Casino. The company currently provides in-building coverage at all of the Trump casinos including Trump Plaza, Trump Marina, and the Taj Mahal. Elsewhere in Atlantic county, Cingular has activated a cell site in Richland and another just north of Corbin City near the intersection of Routes 50 and 557 in New Jersey.

    This year, the company will spend $225 million on network improvements including the addition of 100 cell sites, portable and permanent generators to bring customers better wireless coverage and more services throughout Philadelphia, central and northeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware. Last year, Cingular spent $175 million on network investments in the area, adding 114 new cell sites.

    This is good news, the last time I was in these 4 casino's the coverage was poor in about 1/2 the areas at the casino levels (I do find it interesting that they did all 4 owned by Harrah's 1st).
    I do know Borgata needs it bad, since most times I haven't had any coverage on the gaming floors as well as the concert hall.
    I can say at the Trump casino's the coverage always was good but didn't realize they put "in building" coverage in them.

    I am still waiting for VZW to jump on this bandwagon. My phone is basically useless on the casino floor in most of the hotels. Quite different from Las Vegas, where I had excellent coverage just about everywhere.
