Major League Baseball's 75th Annual All-Star Game at Minute Maid Park was the first time the All-Star Game was played in a venue with Wi-Fi capabilities for fans.
Now fans bringing their Wi-Fi compatible devices to the ballpark for Houston Astros games are able to surf the web when they purchase a four-hour time block for only $3.95 per game.
Fans who subscribe to TWC's Road Runner high-speed online service and bring their username and password will automatically receive a 15-minute, no obligation, free trial subscription at every Astros home game they attend this season. Speed Zone visitors do not have to be Road Runner subscribers to take advantage of Road Runner's fast, simple and secure Wi-Fi hotspot service.
Road Runner Speed Zone clients experience the same standard download and upload speeds as Road Runner high-speed online subscribers: 3Mbps down/ 384Kbps up.
In order to transform Minute Maid Park into a Road Runner Speed Zone, Time Warner Cable deployed nearly 100 wireless access points throughout the ballpark using equipment and support from Cisco Systems, Inc., Colubris Networks and NetNearU Corp.
Toll free Speed Zone technical support is available year-round, 24/7 at 1-866-75-SPEED (77333).
