EUGENE, Ore. — There’s big news for Ducks fans headed for Autzen Stadium Saturday. Most of you will finally be able to tweet text or post your pictures during the game.
Verizon Wireless and AT&T have installed more than a hundred cell phone antennas throughout the stadium. The antennas are hidden behind the wrap around the field and in the light standards high above.
Officials say they give Autzen the same cell phone capability as the entire city of Corvallis.
“They’ll also be able to keep track of what’s taking place in other games tweet out their thoughts and even stay in touch with friends, family, and rivals as we go through the game in real time,” said George Granger, AT&T Oregon External Affairs President.
Similar upgrades were made to Matt Knight Arena in August 2013.
