This optimizes internet speed and reliability no matter the crowd size or location within the arena, from the seating to restaurants and shops.

Fans are increasingly engaging with teams through technologically-advanced mobile devices and apps. With Comcast Business’ WiFi service, fans will seamlessly access gameday and venue necessities including:

    • Share their experiences at State Farm Arena via social channels

      The upgraded WiFi system also enhances the Atlanta Hawks’ behind-the-scenes operations by supporting stadium technology and infrastructure, including Point of Sale (POS) Systems, new access controls, new building management tools, and new applications such as ticketing and wayfinding.
