"Concert goers utilized the Verizon Wireless network by websurfing, texting, and photo/video messaging. So much so, that Verizon Wireless saw a 600 percent increase in data usage that evening," said Amanda Carl, senior account executive from Verizon Wireless.  

"Concert goers were also calling friends and family to share in their excitement, as Verizon Wireless saw a 400 percent increase in voice calling traffic as well. Clearly Bono made quite an impact on Philadelphia music-lovers, while Verizon Wireless was, as always, able to provide its customers with a reliable and quality network experience."
