NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - We are less than three weeks from the start of Nebraskaland Days.
This year, spectators will not only see a full agenda, but also a noticeable addition at the Wild West Arena.
Crews installed a 150-foot tall cell tower on the north side of the arena earlier this month. Nebraskaland Days is partnering with Viaero Wireless once again for the Summer Jam Concert Series.
The new cell tower will allow fans to stay connected while enjoying free WiFi.
“You put a crowd into this place and it’s kind of a dark spot out here anyway for cell service, so Viaero wanted to tackle that for their customers,” said David Fudge, Nebraskaland Days Executive Director. “I think over time you’ll see carriers going in on that tower, but Viaero really led the way.”
Viaero Wireless became the main sponsor of the concerts in January 2020. That same month, the company approached city board members about upgrading cellular and WiFi service reception at the arena.
