    The Church I attend hires out the venue and has 2 wi-fi connections I can
    see on my laptop, one secure for staff the other public for use of such as
    me when in the Starbucks coffee shop or in the building.

    I was in the building when it was being used for a concert and the public
    one had become secure and carrying the name of the production.

    Recently at Leeds Arena I noticed the public connection, a second secure
    with promoters name and another secure carrying the AV companies name.

    I would be interested to know what these people are doing with the wi-fi at
    venues and arenas?

    Keeping everyone up to speed I'd imagine, with any issues etc.

    Maybe the security staff all have cameras attached as seems to be becoming
    the norm for the Police recently.
    In a closed environment they might be able to stream them, whereas at least
    for now, the cops are only on when the person decides to put them on.

    I also wonder if it might sometimes be used for audio, but I'd doubt it due
    to the delays.

    Perhaps the Prima Donna celebs have Internet availability written into
    their contracts?

    They wouldn't want the public sapping it with their Nokias without
    diamond encrusted cases.

    At a recent gig I noticed a wireless router with an ethernet cable
    connected to the mixing desk.

    Turned out they were using a tablet to control the desk remotely.

    Maybe its locked down so someone can't broadcast it live
