I work in HBGCC. There is now free WiFi in the public spaces of the center that is provided by the city, but this does NOT work in the exhibit halls or meeting rooms unless PAX decided to pay to offer it from SmartCity, or you decide to buy it yourself. Exhibitors, of course, must purchase connectivity through SmartCity, but I've heard that it's a little better working in the new space. It is nice to know you can reliably go out to the hallways to check messages though.
Cell phone service is primarily an issue due to number of people, the towers just can't handle it. This is not unique to PAX. Any time really large groups are in, it gets terrible. Annectdotaly, from what I've seen, AT&T customers have it the best, Verizon comes in second and Sprint a distant 3rd. Due to whatever priority protocols are used by the carriers, pretty much anything except the big 3 is hopeless. However all 3 will go in and out depending on where you are in the building .
