In this day and age, we tend to hunt down areas as well as public places where there is free Wi-Fi connectivity wherever we go. American Airlines has decided to team up with mobile carrier AT&T to upgrade the fan experience by rolling out a new Wi-Fi network at the 21,000-plus seat American Airlines Center, thanks to the introduction of over 315 new AT&T Wi-Fi access points. The AT&T Wi-Fi network will be broadcast using Aruba equipment, where it will be facilitated by Aruba Mobility Controllers.
With such a huge number of AT&T Wi-Fi access points available, it ought to be more than enough for fans to connect, apart from sharing their ups and downs on social networks while engaging with teams throughout the facility, which will comprise of the seat, concourse and concession stand areas.
It will be a complimentary Wi-Fi service, and AT&T ensures that Wi-Fi data usage will not add up to your monthly data plan if you happen to be an AT&T subscriber. Basically, AT&T customers who own a Wi-Fi enabled AT&T smartphone or tablet are able to hook up via an auto-authentication process to the Wi-Fi network without the need for any setup procedure or log-in required.
