London Stadium WIFI abandoned

StadiumappPlans to install stadium wide WIFI in the London Stadium have been abandoned after the collapse of the naming rights deal with an Indian company.

Mahindra Tech were awarded the technology contract to install and manage the new stadium wide WIFI but that deal also collapsed when Mahindra pulled out the naming rights deal with owners E20 Stadium LLP.

Earlier this year Karren Brady said “The Stadium will of course be fully connected in the fullness of time. The WIFI is being installed in stages, over a number of months, and should be finished later this year.”

We have been told that the operators, London Stadium 185 will re-look at WIFI in the new year with the option of finding a new partner to provide free WIFI to 57,000 supporters on match days but for now there are no plans in place.

  1. Another broken promise. What can be so difficult in installing a wi-fi system. We can guide a probe to Pluto and can’t put in wi-fi and forgot the police radio system – only at West Ham.
    Obviously saving for the January transfer window. I wonder who they’ll say we’re interested in next.

  2. May I be the first to say, who cares. What would it have been used for that 3G/4G doesn’t give? Everyone has data packages now. Unless people were gonna stream matches and not watch what’s in front of them?! Total meh

  3. I can only get one bar of 4G in the 1966 seats – I can’t even follow the scores elsewhere.

  4. I have O2 and my data rarely works. I get a signal but data rarely works particularly at half time and full time
