Sacramento Kings announce new arena will have ridiculously strong WiFi
The Kings announced Thursday that their new home, the Golden 1 Center, will be the “world's most connected indoor sports and entertainment” venue.
Sacramento's partnership with Comcast Business will reportedly offer “unparalleled” bandwidth due to the installation two 100 gigabit Ethernet circuits. According to the press release, the venue will offer connection over 17,000 times stronger than the average home Internet connection. While that will have to translate to the 17,500-capacity, the post explains that the WiFi will be able to handle 225,000 Instagram photo posts per second.
“The best fans in the world deserve the most connected arena in the world,” Kings President Chris Granger said, in the report. “Our partnership with Comcast enables fans and visitors to share their experiences and connect online seamlessly. It also ensures that Golden 1 Center, the public plaza and DOCO’s connectivity will remain well above industry standards, even as consumer technology improves.”
