TELUS, Edmonton Eskimos Announce Free Wi-Fi at Commonwealth Stadium

TELUS and the Edmonton Eskimos have announced free Wi-Fi will be coming to Commonwealth Stadium, a $2.1 million project to bring connectivity to all users, regardless of mobile provider.

Installations are underway and full-stadium availability will be finished in August, with the official launch set for August 21, when the Eskimos take on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Nicholas Cartmell from TELUS said in a statement “TELUS has deep roots in Edmonton and this partnership ensures that our customers and neighbours here have access to the most advanced technology as they are cheering on the Eskimos.”

    I don’t get it. It drives me crazy when you’re watching a sporting event and you see a bunch of fans in the stands with their heads down looking at their phone. Now they all get free Wi-Fi. If you’re going to a game to browse the internet then maybe you should just stay home.
