The Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning Board of Trustees approved on Thursday improvements to cellular phone service infrastructure at Mississippi State Universityâ€™s Davis Wade Stadium.
According to the boardâ€™s agenda, MSU requested permission from IHL to amend an existing lease with New Cingular Wireless (NCW), which provides the distributed antenna system multiple cellular service providers use to reach customers at MSUâ€™s home football games. In June 2011, the IHL Board cleared MSU to lease 1,635 square feet of space to NCW for this structure.
