Rogers Centre to Debut Free Wi-Fi at Toronto Blue Jays Home Opener [u]

Rogers says today will mark the launch of free Wi-Fi at Rogers Centre, where the Toronto Blue Jays will kick off their home opener tonight versus the Tampa Bay Rays:

As the Toronto Blue Jays kick off their 39th season home opener to a sold-out crowd tonight, fans attending the game at Rogers Centre will now have access to free Wi-Fi.

The new Wi-Fi service is brought to fans by Rogers’ home Internet offering IGNITE, which launched last month with unlimited bandwidth plans (Update: clarified to note the Wi-Fi is not powered by IGNITE).

It’ll be interesting to see how the free Wi-Fi network holds up to demand, as the stadium can seat up to 54,000 people. Let us know if you’re going to try the free Wi-Fi tonight.

Update: Rogers explains to us in an email free Wi-Fi will be available to all future events at Rogers Centre (including Blue Jays games), without any limitations, to all visitors and fans in attendance.

    I have better luck turning off my LTE/3G and relying on EDGE during most busy games.

    My LTE was acting up so turned to WiFi and worked like a charm. It came in handy during that boring game.

    Everyone in my section who had a Rogers phone did not have cell service, whereas Telus and Bell customers did. As well, a lot of people had problems connecting to the wifi or it kept shutting down.
