Wi-Fi service will make its official debut at Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday when the Buffalo Bills host the Indianapolis Colts at 1 p.m.

Bills fans can access the free wireless network by connecting to the 'Bills Guest Wi-Fi' network once they enter the stadium.

The Bills partnered with Carousel Industries and Extreme Networks to provide this enhanced Wi-Fi service in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

After receiving recommendations from the Bills Fan Advisory Board and additional feedback from fans following the 2014 season, the Bills, Carousel Industries, Extreme Networks and Frey Electric began the installation process for the new Wi-Fi system in May 2015. More than 1,000 access points and antennas were installed inside and outside of Ralph Wilson Stadium to ensure consistent connectivity on gameday. The network has been tested throughout the summer during both the Rolling Stones and One Direction concerts in addition to the Bills' two home preseason contests.

"We strive to give our fans the best in-game experience possible when they attend games here at Ralph Wilson Stadium," said Vice President of Operations and Guest Experience Andy Major. "It is important for fans in today's society to stay connected through their devices. We feel this reliable access through our stadium Wi-Fi network will enhance fans' in-game experience by allowing them to use the internet connection to participate in social media-based in-game promotions and contests, check fantasy football scores and communicate via social media networks."
