Thomas Sparrow of Auburn Alabama, a vendor who placed cell-phone charging kiosks inside Auburn’s Jordan Hare Stadium, has been pleased with the following the product has been able to attract.
“Inside Jordan-Hare stadium where the 2010 BCS National Championship Auburn Tigers play, students and fans are constantly using their mobile devices to update friends on the game, post messages via twitter and Facebook, or track scores from games around the country and with that having low batteries on their devices,” he said. “With the thousands of visitors to the 87,000-seat Jordan-Hare stadium for every home game, this helps provide an excellent customer service amenity to fans and provides an additional revenue opportunity to the vendor and school.”
Towson University and University of Alaska have deployed NTC 32 floor models, while Auburn University and the University of Miami are using desktop models.
