Don't forget the Wi-Fi!

The return of crowds to the Cooper Associates County Ground has meant the return of our excellent ground-wide Wi-Fi.

Ahead of the 2019 season, the Club worked with our Official Technology Partner ITEC to install the necessary digital infrastructure in order to improve the spectator experience in line with growing fan expectations.

SCCC and ITEC worked in partnership with Aruba, who installed the Wi-Fi infrastructure, to create a solution that ensures high-performance network access in and around the ground, which is able to accommodate 9,000 concurrent connections.

This means that the Club are able to provide this free service for Members and supporters, allowing those inside the Cooper Associates County Ground to, amongst other things, browse the internet and post on social media.

This also helps to improve the service that the Club offers on non-matchdays, with businesses, organisations and individuals able to take advantage of the service when using the venue for conferences, meetings and presentations.

Nick Parsons, Account Director from ITEC said: “As the official Technology partner for SCCC, we are extremely proud to be part of the Cricket family. By installing a bespoke connectivity solution for SCCC, we have enabled fans and stadium visitors to experience a truly incredible time watching their favourite team and sports. They can access Wi-Fi wherever they are in the ground and enjoy a super-speedy and super-secure connection whilst at a game to share the best moments and make memories.”

The Wi-Fi is completely free of charge and to connect all you have to do is select the option: “_WeAreSomerset” in your settings and enter a valid email address.

You can also update your preferences or unsubscribe at any time.

Thank you to Aruba for the kind use of their video.
