AT&T Enhances Gameday Mobile Internet Coverage In Assembly Hall At Indiana University

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., March 20, 2014 AT&T* has improved its mobile Internet coverage
in Assembly Hall at Indiana University (IU) by joining the arena’s new 4G
LTE-capable** Distributed Antenna System (DAS) to enhance the fan experience.
The neutral host system deployed by Crown Castle International Corp. (NYSE:CCI)
is designed to accommodate multiple carriers. When a big play happens at
Assembly Hall, basketball fans can expect to enjoy an enhanced mobile experience
as they pull out their wireless device to share the most exciting moments with
friends and family.

“When our customers head out to Assembly Hall to cheer on the Hoosiers, we want
them to have a great network experience throughout the game no matter what
they’re doing – whether that’s making a call, sharing via social media,
downloading apps or surfing the Internet,” said AT&T Indiana President Bill
Soards. “With initiatives like Project VIP, we’re continuing to invest in the
wireless network, and providing enhanced wireless coverage at Assembly Hall is
just one way that we’re investing in Bloomington and Indiana.”

“The Assembly Hall DAS is part of an overall plan to improve cellular capability
across campus and we are pleased that IU basketball fans will have improved
service in this storied arena,” said Dennis Cromwell, IU Associate Vice
President of Enterprise Infrastructure. “We appreciate AT&T’s investment and
Crown Castle’s management in working with IU Athletics to make this a reality.”

The DAS installation at Assembly Hall consists of multiple strategically-placed
antennas that distribute AT&T’s wireless network coverage throughout the arena,
providing for more efficient management of wireless capacity in
heavily-trafficked areas. The DAS has the ability to provide enhanced,
consistent wireless coverage to customers inside Assembly Hall. Joining Assembly
Hall’s DAS system is just one 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.

The additional capacity also is expected to help improve call reliability, boost
data traffic capacity and enable more consistent network access to help
customers make the most of their AT&T devices.
