This cricketing season – with T20 World Cup followed by the IPL (Indian Premier League), apart from some smashing activity, cricket fans can look forward to something else. Jionet, from Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, is going to change how cricket fans enjoy their games, by providing high-speed internet connectivity at six main stadiums across the country. This is a first for Jio Net to be connecting six cricket stadiums in the country at one go and what’s more, it is being done on a complimentary basis.
Jionet has embarked on this huge project as a part of revolutionizing how spectators experience the games, as they are commonly faced with issues regarding connectivity. Mobile networks aren’t able to handle such large data traffic Jionet will change this – the connectivity will not only be adequate but will actually be many times faster than experienced before. As a result of which, spectators will be able to share their story ball by ball, connect with their friends and family, surf, stay connected on social networking sites, and more.
"To make this possible, Jionet has harnessed its superior network capacity along with an excellent deployment of specially designed, state-of-the-art Wi-Fi access points (APs) that will cover the entire stadium with a seating capacity of minimum 20,000" said the company in a media statement.
