Re: speaking of slightly OT but perhaps still operational content

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I thought its fairly typical for large events such as these (with lots of communications assets being deployed, not unlike a Superbowl, etc) for Cell companies to roll in COWs (Cell-on-wheels) type deployments to support additional capacity.

Am I living in a fantasy land?

I noticed where the democrats plan to ask a stadium full of people to all
use their cellphones at the same time (on Thursday, I believe)

Any thoughts on how useable cell service will or wont be in the vicinity of
this event? :)
