Cellular Signal to Improve in The Mart The Merchandise Mart has partnered with AT&T to install a multi-million dollar infrastructure upgrade, which will dramatically enhance wireless connectivity throughout The Mart. This installation is known as a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) and is designed to facilitate the traffic of all carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, US Cellular, etc). DAS networks are a highly effective solution in areas with structural impediments to receiving and transmitting wireless signals, such as buildings in congested urban environments. The overall project is on track for completion by early June of 2012. Once completed, the DAS will provide vastly improved wireless connectivity throughout the property. 5
