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.

In addition to having cell phone reception, guests inside the

make room or restaurant reservations or to book show tickets.

development enables the property's guests to access restaurant
reservations via hand-held wireless devices from anywhere in the
