The Denver Broncos are making it easier to post, like, share and tweet during games at Mile High Stadium this season. On Friday, the Broncos announced a $6 million renovation project aimed at providing fans with faster Wi-Fi.

The Broncos are partnering with CenturyLink and Verizon to make fast and free Wi-Fi a reality — even during those peak times at Mile High. The new Wi-Fi system will feature four times as many antennas as the system that was installed more than five years ago.

“We have been working with Verizon engineers since last June to select the best possible Wi-Fi system for our fans,” Broncos vice president of information technology Russ Trainor said in a news release. “Our Wi-Fi system was last updated more than five years ago and needed an uplift. Wi-Fi technology has made some significant advances in the last few years and we wanted to deliver a more robust system to our fans.”

Work on the new system is already about 40 percent complete, the team said. The project is expected to be finished by late October or early November.

The wireless network is called FreeStadiumWiFi.
