Clark County Eyes Better Connectivity Along Las Vegas Strip

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas Strip's popularity with visitors using smartphones to post photos on social media, stream live video and get directions has local officials looking for ways to improve cellphone reception.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Clark County is considering how to help wireless companies place additional cell nodes in the area to improve coverage and connectivity speed.

County official Mike Harwell says options include placing cell sites on bus stop shelters and casino properties and placing more than one small-cell site per pole.
