id Software and Bethesda Softworks are pleased to announce that AT&T is an official sponsor of QuakeCon 2011, North America’s largest Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) LAN party and gaming festival. AT&T’s network will deliver more than five times the bandwidth ever made available to the event -ensuring the most connected and social QuakeCon ever.
AT&T’s participation provides this year’s attendees with the best possible networked gaming experiences and opens up more possibilities than ever for fans at home to enjoy the event through increased live and on-demand video streams.
"We are absolutely stoked to have AT&T as an official sponsor of this year’s event," said Todd Hollenshead, president of id Software. "AT&T has impressed us with their enthusiasm for QuakeCon and stepped up with services to improve every aspect of the event. Gamers at QuakeCon and fans participating from home will see and appreciate the difference."
"AT&T is thrilled to be a part of this year’s BYOC and we’re proud to connect these avid gamers to each other through our greatest asset – our network," said Greg Skasko, director of AT&T Sponsorships. "By wiring the event with our reliable, U-verse High Speed Internet, we’re ensuring that the focus of the party stays on having fun with those who share the same passion for gaming."
QuakeCon 2011 will take place at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas on August 4 through August 7. The event remains free to general admission attendees thanks to the support of id and Bethesda Softworks, as well as the QuakeCon volunteer staff and the 2011 event sponsors and exhibitors.
Doors to the QuakeCon BYOC will open on Thursday, August 4 at 9:00am and will remain open through 12:00pm on Sunday, August 7.
