Telstra has today announced a partnership with Sydney's ANZ Stadium, which will see the telco provide wireless connectivity to the sporting and events venue for the next five years.

The deal sees Australia's number one telco become the exclusive technology partner for Wi-Fi and content distribution at ANZ Stadium.

Telstra says the first stage of the rollout will connect sponsor content to Wi-Fi devices throughout the venue, effectively allowing information, announcements and video content to be displayed to spectators.

Telstra's Enterprise & Government Media Practice Lead, Kathy-Anne McManus, said the partnership will create a new experience for ANZ spectators.

"This technology will further enhance ANZ Stadium’s reputation as one of the world’s great sports and entertainment venues."

"We’re proud to be introducing technology that will improve the customer experience when visiting ANZ Stadium, and ultimately allow fans to engage with IPTV and other online content."

Telstra says the Wi-Fi network at ANZ Stadium will be implemented "in the coming months".

It will be available to the public from the start of 2014 National Rugby League (NRL) season, which begins in March 2014.

ANZ Stadium was purpose built for the Sydney 2000 Olympic games and seats up to 83,500 spectators.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
