Padres' Long-Term Deal With Verizon Bringing Wi-Fi To Petco Park

The Padres have signed a long-term deal with Verizon Wireless that will bring wi-fi to Petco Park and upgrade the facility to meet the needs of 4G technology. The agreement, spanning more than 10 years and valued in the high-six to low-seven figures annually, is part of a larger technology platform the Padres are developing to improve the fan experience at the eight-year-old MLB stadium. The wi-fi system will be activated for the '12 season, with other parts of the program expected to be in place by '13.
