Lord's on cloud nine after WiFi deal

Middlesex CCC

Lord’s is to become the first cricket ground in England to offer free WiFi.

The Marylebone Cricket Club has signed a five-year deal with provider The Cloud to install high-speed public access at the home of cricket.

The service was launched in specific areas during the recent Investec Test between England and South Africa, but will now be rolled out throughout the ground.

Derek Brewer said: “The availability of high speed WiFi adds to the experience of visiting Lord’s.

“Spectators spend a whole day with us, so having secure access to the internet means that they can post photos and videos of their experience, as well as keeping up to speed with commentary and analysis of the match online.

“The service is also ideal for email access, general web surfing, social networking and media streaming.

“The introduction of The Cloud represents another step to ensure that Lord's continues to set the highest standards for spectator experience in the game.”
