NASHVILLE, Tenn.  – Fans will have better wireless Internet access on their mobile devices during games and events at LP Field and Bridgestone Arena now that two new antenna systems have been installed.

Representatives from AT&T, along with the Nashville Predators and Tennessee Titans demonstrated the new system during a news conference on Friday morning at LP Field.

“The coverage here is unbelievable and that's what fans have come to expect at venues such as this,” Executive Vice President of the Titans Don Maclachlan said.  

AT&T installed two new 4G LTE-capable distributed antenna systems to distribute wireless network coverage throughout the two venues for better access during heavily populated events, like football or hockey games.

“That's really what you have to do to for people to have the ability to access the Internet, to get on Instagram and send a picture,” explained Chris Percy, Vice President and general manager of Consumer and Mobility Markets for Tennessee and Kentucky.

The systems can provide enhanced wireless coverage both indoors and outdoors.
