Attendees of the Movement Electronic Music Festival, May 28-30 in Detroit, will have free wireless Internet access on Hart Plaza because of a partnership Paxahau has formed with Zing Networks Inc., and Any-Packet Technology Distribution LLC.
“This new convenience is another example of how our team is always thinking about how we can improve the experience people can have at our festival,” said Jason Huvaere, director of operations for the Movement Electronic Music Festival. “We appreciate Zing Networks Inc., Any-Packet Technology Distribution LLC, and their partner organizations for working with us on this new effort.”
Festival-goers will be able to access the free wireless Internet by simply using their device (laptop, cellphone, etc.). Check your device’s SSID settings and select “ZINGMOVE” to join the official Movement Festival Network. Upon connecting to the free network, users will also have the ability to send five free text messages to their friends courtesy of MBO.
“It was a natural fit for Air-Packet to step in and build a team to put this together this year for the festival,” said Tolly Marcus, founder of Zing and Air-Packet. “We had all of the infrastructure in stock, the know-how, and the connectively already in place via our market position and existing partnerships.”
The partner organizations of Zing Networks Inc., and Any-Packet Technology Distribution LLC who spearheaded the initiative to make the wireless network available at Movement are Internet 123 Inc., SAF Tehnika, Extricom, Proxim, RgNets, Untangled, MBO, and NextWave.
