State Farm Arena in Atlanta (formerly Philips Arena) will enjoy a serious Wi-Fi network upgrade following an agreement announcement along with Comcast Business.
Oh, and this is not just any run-of-the-mill upgrade. Far from it as according to Comcast it will deliver 10 times the current speed and will nearly double the number of access points that existed before the home venue of the Atlanta Hawks was renovated. The deal was announced recently for Comcast Business to both provide and manage the arena’s Wi-Fi network.
“We view renovation as innovation,” Marcus Wasdin, chief information officer for the Hawks,” said in a statement. “This is the perfect opportunity to solidify a core component of the fan experience. Connectivity is the foundation to our digital initiatives where we seek to allow fans to enjoy the arena in new and immersive ways tailored to them. As an organization, we want to create a one-of-a-kind digital experience to engage fans, and this partnership with Comcast Business will provide the foundation for us to do so.”
