Wi-Fi coming to a London Stadium near you soon

London Stadium wide ‘High-density Wi-Fi’ took a step closer with a contract agreed in principle with the Stadium Owners.

Telecoms industry insiders claim O2 will be awarded the contract before the end of this season with Free Wi-Fi scheduled to be made available to all stadium users by the start of the Premier League season later this year.

O2 have rolled out the same Wi-Fi technology across Manchester City’s Etihad stadium, Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu, Twickenham rugby stadium and the London Eye.

O2 hopes to use much of the infrastructure left in the ground from the London 2012 Olympics as well as the existing fibre network but will install a new mesh of Wi-Fi access points to allow a crowd of up to 60,000 to enjoy download speeds of up to 30Mb/s.

Claret and Hugh understand that the deal does not include any sponsorship so the London Stadium will not be renamed the O2 Stadium or the London Stadium powered by O2.  However, Stadium owners may be looking for other sponsors to help absorb the cost of installing and the ongoing upkeep of the Wi-Fi.
