Pipex adds wireless connectivity to Fulham FC
Fulham’s FC’s ground, Craven Cottage, is set to turn wireless after the club agreed a deal with Pipex to add 15 wireless access points in the stadium.
Wireless connectivity allows Fulham to offer fans a new ticketing system that provides an RF (radio-frequency) electronic card for all season tickets – so no more paper tickets. It also means stewards can use PDAs to gain to get seat information and press/photographers have network access during and after the game.
All very interesting – but it’ll be even more interesting to find out if fans can access it. After all, 90 minutes browsing the net on a smartphone could well be better than watching what’s on the pitch.
