    Not exactly. Cuba and Venezuela have had food shortages for years with no covid or storms. Our food shortages are being created by the socialist style of government we have elected in the US. Yes the want you to believe it was caused by covid when in fact it was caused by government.

The cost of getting Cox/LUS to do that in a week would probably pay for itself during one game.

    Then you could bring in third party food vendors and allow them to join to that private WiFi network as well.
    Thank you

Not sure what they can do about that in four days but that will be a pointed focus now.
    Upstairs had one concession open selling everything. 90% of people just wanted beer and water. Not having a separate drink vendor was a killer. There were no signs with items or prices, so people were having to look at the counter once they finally got there taking up even more time. If he thinks this was just a bandwidth issue, he is missing some glaring problems that are easily fixed.

    AT&T has a mono pine behind the Cajundome. Doesn’t help when 25k show up. Would small cell installs be able to get the job done?

    So, bad food and no beer cups were the fault of the internet coverage at CF? C'Mon man...

    We operate in a stadium with 70’s infrastructure. That’s the problem.

    The new renovation should have fiber terminals in every place a vendor might set up. WiFi/5G boosters through the stadium.

    Allow local vendors to set up shop and beer and water stations located in multiple spots away from concessions.

    There’s the list.

    Separate people from those who are just thirsty to those who are also hungry

    Brainiacishly simple idea.

    Those are usually the best kind.

    Sounds simple for the guys in control to figure out. But they can't!

    Water has the largest profit margin.

    Beer and water out of the same kiosks would be the largest profit center in concessions.

    Make it happen.
    I was gonna say just beer and water stations everywhere, but even 20oz bottled soft drinks there would be easy. Also put more places to get over 21 bracelets separate from the points of sale. Put them at the main gates couple hours before kick off and you could go get your bracelet before the game. I understand staffing is an issue but to me it’s not Rocket science. Make it a competition for the people that are working for their organizations and give incentives to the top point of sales locations. Something to motivate them to move a little faster.

    Will any of the additional drink/beer stations be in the upper deck? Is that what they call the promenade level? I sent an email to the AD’s office last year highlighting that problem, and it was never addressed. They used to have two stations up there, then they reduced to one, before eliminating the one entirely. Funny how one person highlighting their failures last year, which my email made points about signage as well, did nothing to fix their issues, but it took them getting egg on their face to fix things.
