Majority of NFL Stadiums Lack Wi-Fi

In May 2012, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced an plan for all 31 n-f-l stadiums to have Wi-Fi, but with the NFL kickoff only two days away, less than half of the stadiums are Wi-Fi enabled.

In May 2012, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced an plan for all 31 n-f-l stadiums to have Wi-Fi, but with the NFL kickoff only two days away, less than half of the stadiums are Wi-Fi enabled. 

Paul Kapustka, the editor in chief for Mobile Sports Report said part of the reason for the delay is some stadium operators are waiting for the next generation of increased Wi-Fi speeds before installing networks.

Another reason, Kapustka said, is that the cost of installing Wi-Fi will come out of the pockets of venue owners and operators who have traditionally not needed to invest in such costly projects because they receive public money to build stadiums and television money to pay for the rights to broadcast games.

The 12 NFL Stadiums with Wi-Fi: Gillette Stadium (Patriots), MetLife Stadium (Giants and Jets), the Georgia Dome (Falcons), Lucas Oil Stadium (Colts), Raymond James Stadium (Buccaneers), the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (Saints), Bank of America Stadium (Panthers), Sun Life Stadium (Dolphins), AT&T Stadium (Cowboys), University of Phoenix Stadium (Cardinals), Ford Field (Lions) and Soldier Field (Bears).
