DENVER ” Verizon Wireless says its customers completed nearly 10 million more calls and data transmissions than normal during the Democratic National Convention Aug. 25-28.

Verizon Wireless added three cell sites in downtown Denver and one Cell on Wheels mobile site for the convention.

It says that on Aug. 28, when Barack Obama accepted his party’s presidential nomination at Invesco Field at Mile High, customers completed nearly 200,000 voice, messaging and data connections per hour.

Verizon Wireless says that’s a 16-fold increase in wireless calls, text messages, picture and video messages, Internet connections and other wireless traffic on cell sites serving the area from a typical weeknight.
