STATESBORO — The installation of broadband wireless internet to Allen E. Paulson Stadium has been completed thanks in part to a partnership between Georgia Southern University and Bulloch Broadband.

With 32 10-gig access points throughout the football stadium, students and spectators will now be able to stay connected while enjoying Eagle football.

“We’re always looking to improve our game day experience and Georgia Southern stepped up to make this happen,” Athletic Director Tom Kleinlein said in a press release. “I want to thank the administration and Bulloch Broadband, along with everyone who worked to get this done for all of their hard work on this project. I really think our fans will enjoy being able to stay connected while also cheering on the Eagles in Paulson Stadium.”

Travis Bozeman, Bulloch’s Manager of Network Engineering, says the project has moved along quickly since starting in February. The infrastructure was already in place in the press box and offices. Fans will now have access to excellent coverage anywhere in the stadium with the increased download speeds provided by the improved broadband and widespread access points.

Fans will be able to enjoy the new wifi when GS opens up its home football schedule on Saturday, Sept. 7 against Maine.
