Venetian enhances cell phone reception throughout property

LAS VEGAS -- The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino now offers its guests enhanced cellular service, making wireless communication accessible throughout the megaresort.

Designed and installed by LGC Wireless, the service is available to guests using any of the five major wireless companies -- AT&T, Cingular, Nextel, Sprint PCS or Verizon.

Traditionally, wireless service was a problem in large-scale properties because of physical barriers such as concrete walls.

In addition to having cell phone reception, guests inside the Venetian can access other wireless applications, enabling them to make room or restaurant reservations or to book show tickets.

One example of an Internet application currently under development enables the property's guests to access restaurant reservations via hand-held wireless devices from anywhere in the resort.
