Las Vegas

“We’re committed to elevating every guest experience as the world relies increasingly on mobile devices and applications. This was at the core of our decision to partner with Extenet. They delight in the user experience – so our properties can reliably bring better service and enrichment to our guests.”

Jim Kimball, Executive Director of Enterprise Collaboration, MGM Resorts International

In a city where every corner pulses with energy, Extenet has become synonymous with reliability, connectivity and innovation. Las Vegas is widely recognized as the entertainment hub of the world, hosting approximately 40 million visitors annually.

In this highly competitive setting, sports, entertainment and hospitality venues require creative, custom-tailored network infrastructure solutions to meet the demands of large-scale events and densely-packed crowds—whether indoors or outdoors. Extenet has resoundingly risen to meet these demands by providing connectivity infrastructure and solutions to match the scale and intensity of the most spotlighted events in the world.

Premier Partnerships in Las Vegas

Extenet’s Las Vegas journey began with a strategic focus on enhancing wireless connectivity for residents and visitors alike. We initially deployed outdoor nodes for wireless carriers and provided in-building cellular enhancements for select indoor venues.

Extenet’s market presence skyrocketed with our partnership with MGM Resorts—the largest in-building cellular enhancement project in the U.S.—ensuring seamless 5G service for nearly 100,000 daily visitors. With iconic hotel and casino properties like the Excalibur, Mandalay Bay, the Bellagio and more to come, Extenet is enhancing the guest experience with superior cellular connectivity while also supporting MGM Resort’s WiFi network upgrade.

Additionally, Extenet worked with content providers, including global broadcast media, for the 2023 Formula 1 Heineken Silver Las Grand Prix. Our extensive fiber footprint in the market connects media outlets with fans from across the world and supports race team and event staff communications.

In 2024, Extenet will provide similar fiber connectivity services in support of the Big Game.
