The NFL ’18-’19 regular season has concluded. While most of the League and its fans are fully focused on the NFL playoffs, it’s never too early to unpack some of the takeaways from the season itself.  As the Official Wi-Fi Solutions Provider of the NFL, Extreme is always curious to learn how NFL fans are interacting with digital platforms, specifically across in-stadium Wi-Fi networks.
