With the 2023-24 men’s and women’s basketball seasons now underway, Orange fans with Verizon Wireless can now access the new state-of-the-art 5G system at Syracuse University’s JMA Wireless Dome. Syracuse University is actively working with AT&T and T-Mobile to make the 5G access available to their customers as soon as possible. After more than a year of work, with over 800 miles of fiber optics and hundreds of new antennas throughout the building, the new system makes the JMA Dome the most connected collegiate stadium in the U.S. and will elevate the fan experience by providing high-speed network coverage everywhere from the court to the stands to the concourse. 

Employing JMA’s Distributed Antenna System (DAS), the JMA Dome now features the same quality of mobile phone connectivity, speed and performance that is comparable to many professional football stadiums across the nation—including the newest stadiums in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.  

“We promised our fans a world-class event experience and with this technology, we are delivering on that promise,” says John Wildhack, director of Athletics. “Orange athletics fans are simply unmatched in their passion. Now, their fan experience will be unmatched as they engage across social medial channels, check scores of other games, text and video chat with their fellow fans and access all the multimedia services available at the JMA Dome.”
