Pokémon GO developer Niantic and cell providers confirm they’re ready for Pokémon GO Fest this weekend in Chicago, Illinois

Pokémon GO developer Niantic has affirmed that it’s prepared for this year’s Pokémon GO Fest, which is set to take place on July 14 and 15 in Chicago, Illinois. “The event will feature a much larger footprint and be more geographically distributed compared to last year,” Niantic Inc. spokesman Yafine Lee told the Chicago Sun-Times.

The nation’s four largest cellular network providers — Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile — said they have implemented upgrades in anticipation of this year’s event. “We’ve deployed four additional temporary cell sites in the Lincoln Park area,” said Jennifer Silveira, senior vice president of engineering and technology for T-Mobile’s Central Region. The portable cell towers are being tested in Chicago this week.
