WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Fans at Mackey Arena are getting better cell phone reception.

AT&T completed a system upgrade at the arena on Tuesday.

Fans are now able to access social media more easily when the stands are full.

Verizon and T-Mobile are next on the list to increase reception.

Tom Schott says this is all a part of the athletic department's effort to increase the fan experience.

Mackey also has brand new video screens on the center-court scoreboard.
