Cleveland Indians Partner with Verizon Wireless to Enhance wi-fi, Cell Phone Service
The Indians have partnered with Verizon Wireless to bring enhanced wi-fi and cell phone service to Progressive Field.
The advent of a new distributed antenna system and wi-fi network will provide fans with more reliable wireless and 4G LTE network access.
“This implementation will significantly enhance fans’ digital experience at the ballpark by making social media and their favorite apps more easily accessible, as well as completing common functions like making a call or sending an email or text,” said Neil Weiss, the Indians senior vice president of technology and chief information officer, in a statement.
The Indians have 72 of their 81 regular-season home games remaining.
“The new DAS and Wi-Fi provide the platform for which technology can enhance the experience at the ballpark," said Indians president Mark Shapiro, "and can help to further create memories for our fans."
