The Verizon Gate
Verizon’s focus in Pittsburgh is in three different areas, Landline phones, Wireless service, and their newly introduced Fios TV.
The Verizon Entrance sits on Centre Avenue and is accessible from many of the CONSOL Energy Center parking lots. The center piece of the entranceway is the Verizon Studios, which will broadcast the Pre-and Post-game radio shows on the Penguins Radio Network. Fans can sign up for contests, watch videos on the newest Fios Network, and even look at the hottest new phones in the market, all while listening to Steve Mears and Bob Grove live.
Behind the Verizon Studio is an enormous video map, which when activated during Penguins games, will show realtime the Twitter activity of anyone discussing a Penguins player or the team itself. It will track the location of the tweet and showcase the trends of the comments.
