SPURS GIVE TEAMS UP WITH AT&T AND ARUBA TO OFFER FREE WI-FI ACCESS AT THE AT&T CENTER TO COMMUNITY MEMBERS AFFECTED BY COVID-19
Community Members Can Access Wi-Fi From Their Cars While Observing Social Distancing
Spurs Give, the official nonprofit of Spurs Sports & Entertainment, is teaming up with AT&T and Aruba to offer free high-speed, wireless internet at the AT&T Center for San Antonio community members who need reliable Wi-Fi access due to COVID-19. The service will enable students and other members of the community to continue to learn, work and stay connected from the safety of their cars in the parking lot.
Members of the community will be able to access the free internet hotspot starting on Monday, April 20 by parking in Lot 3 at the AT&T Center, located at 1 AT&T Center Pwky. The internet will be available daily from 8 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Families can access free internet through any smart devices with Wi-Fi capabilities, by searching for available networks and connecting to the “spursgive” Wi-Fi network.
Participating community members must follow social distancing rules and abide the City and County orders by staying in their car and will not be permitted to walk onto the property. The AT&T Center and the Bexar County Sheriff's Office will be enforcing the government orders on-site for the health and safety of everyone.
AT&T worked with the arena to utilize its AT&T Global Video Services infrastructure, usually used for transferring high-quality broadcast video, for a high-speed publicly accessible Wi-Fi network through Aruba hotspots. On top of the fiber to Wi-Fi conversion, AT&T Cybersecurity’s Global Security Gateway service is being provided to keep connections highly secure and protected.
