Owner Arthur Blank and his organization seem to have thought of everything when it comes to the Atlanta Falcons’ new home, Mercedes Benz-Stadium.

From environmental sustainability to famously cheap concession prices, the venue will offer many never-before-seen amenities and will change the way sports stadiums are built in the future.

One area that Blank and his team have not overlooked is internet access, which can be spotty at best in some pro sports arenas.

That shouldn’t be a problem at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which will feature 1,800 wireless access points provided by AT&T, per Phil W. Hudson at the Atlanta Business Chronicle:

AT&T will deliver two redundant 40GB (80GB total) internet connections, powering the 1,800 wireless access points throughout Mercedes-Benz Stadium. This will create one of the fastest Wi-Fi experiences in any pro sports stadium. Additionally, AT&T will provide monitoring and maintenance for the stadium’s Wi-Fi systems. AT&T’s DIRECTV will connect to Mercedes-Benz Stadium’s IPTV system, delivering rich HD video content to more than 2,000 displays in the stadium.
