Over the weekend, we found out that stadium-wide wifi is NOT one of the new perks at Commonwealth Stadium this fall. Wifi access will only be available for fans in premium seating areas (around 2,000 fans) and those in the press box. The news has caused a bit of a stir this week, and in response, UK posted an update in which they say they do anticipate better cell service in the stadium thanks to new cell towers in the area:
AT&T is in the process of once again enhancing its service surrounding The New CWS and the impact is expected to be noticeable with the permanent installation of cell towers. Verizon is also improving its service with a temporary enhancement. And beginning with the 2016 season, AT&T and Verizon will merge onto the same system.
Well, that’s good for AT&T and Verizon users, I guess. Sprint and T-Mobile, I guess you’re out of luck.
