Verizon Wireless gets its first mobile 4G COW

The next time you're in Florida for a sporting event, your LTE connection could be provided by a COW, Verizon's portable cell phone tower on wheels.

The carrier's first 4G COW was delivered to Pembroke Pines and will be used at major public events throughout the state of Florida. The mobile cell tower lives up to it acronym. It weighs 24,000 pounds, measures 1,080 inches with its antenna extended, is powered by super-sized generators and can provide supplemental phone and data coverage for thousands of Verizon customers.
