    If we don't have wifi how on earth are we going to know what the score is?

    i like to play candy crush when the opposition are on the attack so wifi would be a boon to me as it would save my data allowance.

    When people hold their phones up to take pictures or record a video at games the stewards aren't bothered, but what happens when people start to live stream a game with ustream or similar using the stadium wifi? A post on bluemoon asking if anyone has a stream will get a reply of 'hold on, I'll text my mate at the game and ask him to stream it'. Might be handy for those early rounds of the league cup when we don't get shown.

    Like I said before the season started, its virtually impossible to provide Wi-Fi for that many people. Its OK saying 50k people wont want to access at the same time but all they need is a phone which is Wi-Fi enabled and if there is an open network it will automatically connect. Nowhere in the world has achieved this on a similar scale yet. I have been part of a team who has looked into this for a stadium with a similar capacity and despite numerous suppliers claiming to be able to do it, when you question them on the mathematics of it they start backing away.

    They seem to have sorted the O2 network out though which is good, I can make/take calls and send/receive texts which I've never been able to do before.

    Well most of us live in the 21st century and want to watch the game in front of us via WiFi.

    Was involved with Cisco's new high density wifi that the club are using on a different project and had contacts who had trialled it and tested it at other venues (US). While very expensive to implement and maintain it does work and works well. Unfortunately no longer with the ITSP so can't provide you with an inside view of the metrics etc, but trust me, it is very possible and works really well.

    Just to undermine my statement though, we ain't got it yet ?
