AT&T connects Wi-Fi deal with Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena

Cleveland Cavaliers fans will be able to access the Internet on their laptops and personal digital assistants when they’re not watching LeBron James dominate the paint.

AT&T’s Wi-Fi service is available at the arena’s bars, restaurants, press lounge and work areas. The telecom company’s Wi-Fi service offers speeds that are up to 50 to 100 times faster than dial-up connections.

Patrons will be able to access the Internet by buying a $7.95 day pass at the arena for a 24-hour session. Or if someone is already an AT&T Wi-Fi monthly subscriber, that fan can automatically access the Internet at the arena or at more than 10,000 hot spots nationwide.
