DAYTONFans have long complained about the lack of Wi-Fi at UD Arena. With 13,000-plus fans often watching the Dayton Flyers play, it can be hard to even get a cell phone signal during a game. Checking scores of other games or posting a video to Twitter or Instagram can be a pain.

Some fans should see an improvement this season, however. An ad in the new game program tells fans they can "Enjoy Dayton basketball in a whole new way," because of new Cincinnati Bell Wi-Fi at UD Arena.

After phase two of the three-year, $72-million renovation, there is now Wi-Fi coverage for those seated in the lower bowl. Coverage will be available in the full arena in the 2019-20 season.

Fans who want try the new WI-FI at 7 p.m. Thursday when the women's team plays Indianapolis in an exhibition game or at 7 p.m. Friday when the men's team plays Capital in an exhibition, the network is titled, "Fioptics Free WI-FI."

To give fans more time to get used to all the changes at the arena, it will open two hours before tip-off — instead of one hour early — for the exhibition games, the women's first regular-season games and the first couple of men's regular-season games.
