“The opportunities with mobile are endless and venues who don’t recognize this will be left behind,” said Ken Sandfeld, president at Solid Americas. “By 2021, global mobile data traffic will grow 7-fold, greatly increasing the spike in connectivity demands that stadiums can expect to see over the next few years and beyond. Turning to new wireless solutions is the move to make to ensure your venue is mobile-friendly.”

Boingo and Solid are leaders in DAS connectivity solutions for sports and entertainment venues. DAS networks increase wireless coverage for fans and enhance their game day experience. A DAS installation consists of multiple strategically-placed antennas that distribute wireless network coverage throughout arenas and stadiums, providing reliable coverage in heavily-trafficked, dense areas and minimizing fan frustration that is often associated with not having cell service. Boingo also offers Wi-Fi to round out the connectivity experience, which can serve as a go-to for fans who are cautious about not exceeding their phone’s monthly data caps.

When it comes to connectivity, Boingo and Solid are a winning team.
