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.”
The availability of free Wi-Fi for fans aims to increase fan engagement in games and on social media, plus allow fans to enter on-field and in-seat contests, via the updated 2.0 Edmonton Eskimos for iPhone app, which launched last week.
