Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
"The University of Oregon Autzen Stadium wireless capabilities have been upgraded by both AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless," says KPTV, Aug. 27.
Industry analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.
“Watching football will be much more fun now that AT&T and Verizon have both installed new wireless capability in the University of Oregon Autzen Stadium. I’m sure fans will be very happy,” says Wireless Analyst Jeff Kagan.
AT&T and Verizon have roughly 70 percent market share. So that means roughly 70 percent of attendees will have a much better signal.
“Game day cell service will be better than ever. Wireless has really exploded in the last several years at games like this. Not just for calls, but for wireless data too. That means social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn as well as traditional email and text services,” says Telecom analyst Kagan.
“Plus many users actually take and send pictures, and even watch plays on their handsets. So upgrading the capability was necessary and will make users much happier,” says Technology analyst Kagan.
“Updating wireless capacity of every stadium in the country may just become a big opportunity for both AT&T and Verizon,” says Tech analyst Kagan.
This will be in service for the Ducks first home football game of the 2014 season this Saturday.
The deployment is nearly 200 antennas within the 47 year old stadium and has enough network capacity to cover the entire City of Corvallis, OR.
