Trusted to Deliver the Connected Experience

Sports and Entertainment Venues all over the world have chosen Extreme to advance their fan experience with us.

“The reason why Wi-Fi is important for us is because its important for our fans. And I think at the very basic level, not having Wi-Fi in our stadium, takes something away from our fans that they have in normal daily life. Our partnership with Extreme has been phenomenal. They’ve been incredibly attentive, have been communicative, have really focused on what we need – we couldn’t be happier with the partnership.”

James Slagle
Assistant Athletic Director for Revenue Generation, University of Florida
