MTS thinks those who will attend Dauphin’s Countryfest next weekend are going to get a charge out of two new campground features.
Countryfest and MTS have teamed up to erect a new temporary cellular tower at the festival, which runs from June 27 to 30, and a new charging station so those with smartphones and other portable electronic goods can keep powered up all weekend.
The tower will help ensure strong wireless service so Countryfest concert-goers can keep in touch with friends and family on site or back home, Countryfest president Eric Irwin said in a release today.
Countryfest recently signed a three-year sponsorship agreement with MTS that will boost the site’s wireless services. Countryfest then put up $80,000 for building a permanent structure that will house the cell tower.
The free charging station has the capacity to charge more than 100 devices every hour, MTS president Kelvin Shepherd said in the release.
