In an effort to create a more connected game-day experience, Auburn University is working with Verizon to deploy a public Wi-Fi network in the Tigers' stadium. The new wireless network was live in time for Auburn's first home football game on Sept. 15 against the University of Louisiana-Monroe, and enabled Auburn fans to use their tablets, smartphones and laptops to keep up with the game.
"Technology has become a significant part of the game-day experience," said Scott Carr, Auburn senior associate director of athletics for external affairs. "Fans are uploading pictures to social networks, checking scores, even watching highlights on their devices. This Wi-Fi network will keep our fans in the stadium connected to Auburn fans across the state and beyond."
