Wi-Fi coverage to be expanded at Superdome

Fans coming to the Super Bowl in New Orleans in February should be able to get onto their Wi-Fi devices with more ease.

On Wednesday the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District Board approved spending $343,200 on expanding the Wi-Fi network for the Superdome, the New Orleans Arena and nearby Champions Square.

The Times-Picayune reports that the board approved the upgrade to get the Superdome ready for the Super Bowl.

Doug Thornton, the senior vice president of SMG, the firm that manages the Superdome and the Arena, said the Superdome will join Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium as the only venues in the NFL to offer complete Wi-Fi coverage to patrons.
