ALL IN AT ALLSTATE ARENA: In Chicago, Danny Ecker reported the city of Rosemont, Ill., on Wednesday was expected to approve a new contract with L.A.-based wireless network provider Boingo Wireless to "install a free Wi-Fi network and distributed antenna system" at Allstate Arena. The deal will "mark the debut of public Wi-Fi at the 33-year-old facility and greatly expand its capacity for smartphone usage, such as posting photos on social media." Wi-Fi service at the arena, which hosts DePaul's men's basketball team, the AHL Wolves and the WNBA Sky, "will be supported by advertising revenue" (CHICAGOBUSINESS.com, 11/13).
