Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, August 23, 2021

The St. Pete Times Forum, home of the Stanley Cup Champion Tampa Bay Lightning, is going wi-fi.

I imagine the immediate beneficiaries will be reporters covering events there; they won’t have to hunt for data jacks for their notebook computers anymore. But past that? Ticketholders to hockey games and concerts aren’t likely to be lugging notebooks with them. PDAs are generally on the way out, and the phones that are replacing them are already able to tap into cellular service networks. As more and more Bluetooth-enabled devices (aside from phones) flood the market, I’m sure an arena-sized hotspot will be much appreciated. But for now, it’s more effective as a marketing plug.
