RG has supposedly been working with AT&T, i think, to improve the in stadium Wi-Fi. GUess we will find out soon enough.
Its ****in GAMEDAY!
RG is like our own Larry Scott, coming up with innovative ways to market CU athletics. :thumbsup:
I still have concerns about WiFi coverage, capacity and speed. That's the kind of thing CU would historically forget about. Come out with a great app, don't support it with adequate infrastructure.
Hate to say "I told you so" but...
did anybody else try the app? I couldn't get connected, there was no audio feed, etc.
great, great idea, horribly failed execution.
+1. I know NFL stadiums are having issues with cell phone overload and a lack of wifi as well. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think the issue is specific to CU but I would hope that our Pac12 ties, and all the emphasis on technology, would help us fix this sooner rather than later. The app is great but not very useful if you can't get any connectivity.
I didn't start really trying to use the app until the second half, when the crowd had significantly thinned out, but I was able to get real-time stats, which I thought was useful. I could not find any wifi that could be accessed, at least in Sec 216, but my normal ATT LTE actually gave me access, which was a new experience for me. My section is directly above the student section, and I saw more than a few of them holding their cell phones above their heads in order to try to get a better signal to send text messages (I could actually see what app was open from where I was sitting). If they want more student participation, and prolonged student participation (i.e. into the second half for a night game), they really need to figure out a way that the kids can use their smartphones during the game.
Spiff can back me up on this regarding the wifi, because this is just basic science. Once they get the matter/anti matter converter and flux capacitor in place, the wifi will ROCK! :thumbsup:
worked fine for me on verizon
