Baltimore Orioles’ Camden Yards poised to finally get free public Wi-Fi

Camden Yards – one of the last Major League Baseball arenas without a public Wi-Fi network – is poised to finally let Baltimore Orioles fans connect to the internet via their smartphones.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Maryland Stadium Authority’s board of directors approved a letter of intent to begin a 90-day negotiation with Verizon to resolve this anomaly. It is unclear when the free Wi-Fi will be installed but it is likely to be in time for next season.

Many Orioles fans have recently complained about the lack of Wi-Fi, saying that their cellular networks often slow down because too many people are using them in the same place at the same time.
