Las Vegas, NV, December 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- LV.Net and the City of Las Vegas celebrate Free Wi-Fi with a Social Media Scavenger Hunt at 6 pm on December 5th. The Scavenger Hunt starts at the Art Bar at The Downtown Grand located at 206 Third Street. Win prizes from LV.Net, Mob Museum and Zappos. Social media enthusiasts transmit direct to Twitter to win prizes. To celebrate the time of giving, LV.Net is donating $1, up to $500, to The Animal Foundation every time the #DTWIFI hashtag is used throughout the Scavenger Hunt. Keep up with the event on the City of Las Vegas’ Twitter account.
LV.Net has been providing high speed Internet to Las Vegas since 1996. Las Vegas City Council members approved of LV.Net’s attached installation equipment to street poles to broadcast a lightning fast network combining free Wi-Fi to open areas downtown.
LV.Net provides high speed internet for corporate events and conventions like the most influential electronic show on the planet, International CES coming to Las Vegas in January 2014. Global delegates see free Wi-Fi as an opportunity when they consider moving their startup companies to Las Vegas. Marty Mizrahi insists. “Businesses need the Internet to recruit talent. Leaders in tech want to see how savvy our city is. Startup companies in Silicon Valley first ask Las Vegas developers, 'How fast is your Internet?' Now city officials can say, 'We provide free Wi-Fi downtown'.”
LV.NET has saved the City of Las Vegas tens of millions by installing high speed transmissions to customers at no cost. Buy show tickets, reserve a hotel room, attend a virtual board meeting with business executives, apply for a job online, or simply send pictures in real time to relatives back home while you are on vacation in Vegas.
“Las Vegas’ competitive advantage is directly tied to Internet access. Our town’s success depends on providing high speed Internet to pedestrians as well as corporations. This engineering enhances a phase of Wi-Fi our city has that other state capitols have failed to deliver. The speed currently has a download/upload thrust of 1Mbps per second. LV.Net gives entrepreneurs a free connection to business in Las Vegas.” - Mitchell Gonzalez, Vice President of LV.Net.
