TOPIC: Free Wi-Fi at GenCon

Free Wi-Fi at GenCon 1 year 3 months ago #1

Anyone else notice the email from GenCon yesterday I lm used a blurb about free wi-fi, including the stadium?

Any bets whether it will work *under* the stadium or not, like for example where most of TD is?

Yet, GC chose to send it out in a blast email, essentially inviting complaints for no reason if they dont make it work.

I hope it works. I will not rely on it.

As they move more and more to electronic event ticketing, it will become become necessary.

“You must have a WiFi capable device.” It a much lower hurdle to clear than “You must have a cellular data capable device and and an active data plan.” - especially for international attendees.

But yeah, I would expect large problems with it being usable.

as an attendee i doubt we will ever need a wifi capable device. scan the barcode it links to all the data. Maybe Vendors and all event providers probable will all be required at some point.

How did you get the Barcode on your device again in the first place? :P

If Gen Con is going to sell generics via e-tickets they need wifi at their venue.

I think the barcode is on one's badge, not one's device

Yep, this. And you can go buy tickets at any one of the dozen or so game hqs or ticket sales areas to get them added to your badge. No need to have a phone at all.
