Sports Authority Field at Mile High upgrading Wi-Fi for new season

DENVER -- Fans attending games are in for a little treat this year at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

It's not free parking or a new gourmet restaurant -- it's free and faster Wi-Fi.

The $6 million Wi-Fi renovation promises much improved service since the system was last updated five years ago. The Broncos are splitting the cost with Verizon Wireless.

New antennas are being installed overhead, in the rails and under some of the seats. It promises to be the best Wi-Fi in the NFL, Broncos senior tech engineer Jason Moore said.

The entire refit will be fully functional by mid-October, just in time for a Sunday night game against the New York Giants.
