Verizon, an Official Technology Partner and the Official 5G Network of the NFL, will activate at the 2023 NFL Draft Weekend (April 27-29) to showcase the transformative performance of Verizon 5G, demonstrating recently upgraded network enhancements throughout the Kansas City area.

In preparation for the 2023 NFL Draft Weekend, Verizon engineers have deployed temporary cell sites specifically covering the areas where 2023 NFL Draft events will take place. These temporary assets will provide 5G Ultra Wideband coverage and use a performance enhancement technology. Additional temporary in-building solutions will be added to Union Station and local hotels.

In the most recent test measuring performance of major wireless carriers throughout Kansas City, Verizon not only wins for overall network performance, but is unbeaten in every single category measured including accessibility, speed, reliability and performance in data, texts and calls. The results show steady speeds for Verizon customers in Kansas City with Verizon’s median download speed increasing 39% in the market and Verizon’s median upload speeds increasing by 25% since last year. This is the fifth consecutive testing period from RootMetrics where Verizon has been unbeaten in the state, showing peak speeds of up to 323 Mbps.

Additionally, Verizon will host an Escape Room activation and Trivia Night event for fans to learn more about the company’s new products and services during the NFL Draft Weekend.
