CALLING ALL CHEESEHEADS: Packers Dir of Public Affairs Aaron Popkey said that cellular service "has improved at Lambeau Field in recent years but conceded there is a need for improvement." Popkey said, "In some areas, some access is better than in other areas. There have been challenges because of the layout of the bowl." In Milwaukee, Don Walker noted there are "multiple cellular antennas" inside the stadium. Verizon "installed antennas last year" and AT&T this year began using the system as well "on a leased basis." Popkey said that "other carriers could join in the future" (JSONLINE.com, 10/7)
