RTC: City paying $1.2M for Wi-Fi upgrades

EverBank Field is going to have to undergo another upgrade by the end of the season and it's going to cost the city of Jacksonville an additional $1.2 million.

The NFL has mandated that its teams have minimum Wi-Fi standards in its stadiums and it's going to cost an estimated $4 million to bring EverBank Field up to the standard, according to a change in the agreement between the city and the Jaguars that the City Council could vote on Tuesday. The Financial News & Daily Record's David Chapman wrote that the team will pay $1.8 million, the city will pay no more than $1.25 million, and the rest of the $4 million will come from $1 million in savings from the current EverBank Field upgrades.

The city is responsible for $43 million of the $63 million renovation of the stadium, which includes pools, cabana seating and the world's largest video boards.
