Eventfinda Stadium has Wi-Fi enabled throughout the venue. This is provided by Vodafone on a 100/100MB UFB circuit.
This infrastructure is designed for WiFi for guests and general internet use is free for users although no guarantees are made about stability as it is a Ultra Fast Broadband network.
The WiFi network is NOT suitable for streaming or critical event infrastructure use. To enable streaming or critical event functionality please talk to your Event Coordinator to establish what is needed to provide the most robust functionality.
Hirers are able to request their own networks WiFi at a cost of $200-250 + GST per event.
Cabled or Hardwire (Cat-5) connections are available at a cost of $200-350 + GST per connection
Our venue is equipped with a modern and highly adaptable Wi-Fi system throughout most rooms and spaces within the Stadium.
As the first indoor stadium in Auckland our venue has limited “hard-wire” capabilty on site however we can make this happen in many places where it is economical.
Visitor Wi-Fi is provided via an open network which requires the agreement and acceptance of standard terms and conditions of use. This network (EVENTFINDA GUEST) is unmetered and has very limited content blocking to ensure equitable access. We do manage this network during periods of high use and will disable clients that are demanding excess bandwidth or prejudicing other users of the network.
From time to time clients request a specific network for their exhibitors and or guests and wish to have this with their own custom WI-FI network name and password.
We are able to facilitate this through through the CUSTOM NETWORK REQUEST form available on this website. A fee is payable to cover the cost of configuring the network and this fee increases the closer we get to the booking. All requests are to be submitted through this network.
Occasionally clients will request a hardwired internet connection. As the building has only a few of these connections installation of these cables is more difficult than the delivery of a custom WI-FI network and are therefore much more expensive.
We recommend you avoid the use of Hardwire/Cat-5 cables inside the venue wherever possible.
Streaming from the venue is often possible however not guaranteed. We have had limited success in the past with streaming solutions, however due to the nature of the connections to the public network these can from time to time be unreliable.
We recommend talking to your event coordinator if you have a requirement for guaranteed up time or critical broadcast internet provision as we are able to install these with appropriate notice.
Streaming is not recommended from the Eventfinda Stadium Network.
