Free Wifi at Stadium Looks Like a Let Down

It appears you will need to be an AT&T customer to access free WiFi at the Stadium for 2012. Kind of lame, should be free for everyone that buys a ticket to the game.

Free AT&T Wi-Fi available at BofA Stadium

Posted: Tuesday, Aug. 07, 2012

AT&T mobile-device users can now access free Wi-Fi from the seats and concession areas at Bank of America Stadium – just in time for the Democratic National Convention.

The upgrades at the 70,000-seat stadium, announced Tuesday, should boost the experience of Carolina Panthers fans using AT&T Wi-Fi-enabled cellphones and tablets, according to the telecommunications company.

Since the 460 access points are in place now, attendees of President Barack Obama’s Sept. 6 acceptance speech at the stadium will benefit, according to AT&T.

So will Panthers fans, according to Danny Morrison, president of the Carolina Panthers.

“Now they can combine the excitement of cheering on their favorite team with having real-time stats, access to popular social media and all their favorite apps right at their fingertips,” Morrison said.

It's probably just branded AT&T Wifi, just like the hotspots you usually find at McDonalds. You should still be able to get on it even if you're a non-AT&T customer.

I think when I attend a game I will focus on the field and not my phone.

Oh I agree, but quite frankly I rather know how the other games are going than watch frisbee catching dogs run around at half time.

I could see using it pregame, but that would be the only time.
