    As title suggests, would just like to see if its a generational thing, personally think it would make atmosphere worse, but would like to see/hear others views

    There's a fella who sits in front of me who is never off his phone during the game. Don't get it.

    Wifi only at half time so people can check scores and stuff like that.

    Although im not keen on it myself you could also use it for some interactive games at HT. This could help drive some kind of crowd interaction.

    I have the same opinion. I find it amazing how some people like to go to the match and pay little attention to the football. There are people who literally spend half of the match in the bar. I do wonder why they bother.

    I don't get offended by people doing something different to me so fine with wifi although I'd rarely if ever use it.

    Good shout.

    I ****ing love the internet, but don’t give a rats ass about it while football is actually going on.

    I’ll mooch with stuff on my phone through any non-gripping telly, and most matches non-Wolves.
    Can’t see any real need for proper visitor WiFi while ball in play.
    A stable, usable connection for potentially that many people for interactive games though would be pretty demanding.
    Most mass venue WiFi is god-awful.

    No WiFi and should have phone signal blockers.
    Some of the best games for atmosphere in the last 30 years has been mid 90’s, way before Dave from Dudley was sticking 50p on in play bets every ****ing minute.

    Catch 22 for me.

    I get frustrated with people videoing the game and using their phones all the while but I also get frustrated when I try and look at the scores at half time and cant get a signal. Or sometimes I like to put an in play bet on at half time and cant get signal.

    Realistically its a matter of time before its installed I would imagine

    Us fans should be concentrated on the match and not on their phones so I voted No.

    It sounds like you need a therapist, not WiFi.

    It'll be ok, just calm down.

    I would imagine a majority of people that are against WiFi being installed would still use it given the opportunity.

    I’m not bothered either way, if they install it, great, I can check the scores at half time.

    I'm surprised over 85% of the votes are for wifi right now to be honest, despite being in favour myself. Thought it would be a bit closer to 50:50.

    I get you to be honest. When I'm with the lads in the Southbank I couldn't agree more. But when I'm sat with the Mrs in the Billy Wright I like to check my bets and other scores at half time.

    How about Wifi in the family stand, not elsewhere?

    I'd like WiFi, I'm the only one of my group that smokes so I go on my phone at HT when I'm in the smoking area.

    I normally only check the scores once or twice while the match is in play (at a natural pause if possible). I’d do it at half time but you definitely can’t get a signal then.

    Its got nothing to do with videoing the game or making vlogs...

    So many people in one area my phone becomes useless, just sending messages can get troublesome especially at half time when the bandwidth cant cope.

    WiFi for seasonn ticket holders would be amazing! I like to get scores and stuff from other games, at the moment i cant at halftime.

    Under 40 and there should be Wi-Fi. If the club wants Molineux to host events (such as the Rod Stewart concert in the Summer) then this will help their cause too.

    Exactly right. Not sure why people have such a big deal with what others are doing, if they want to check scores throughout the game or at halftime then let them do so, they've paid their money to attend the game like everybody else.

    Over 40 and couldn't give a *******s if Wolves never supply Wi-Fi if they had it I would likely use it Pre match and HT but so many more would just sit on their phones during the match. If thats what you wanna do get a data package instead of expecting the club to pay for your browsing. I pay to watch Wolves not play with a media device.

    Have to say that at Wembley the other day it was great just listening to music at half time. It was just like football used to be and I'd like it to return at The Mol.

    Although I agree what people are saying re shouldn't be on the phone during game, to say without Wi-Fi they wouldn't be on it is laughable. People will just try using data (failing miserably mind).

    May aswell have it rather than not.

    Plus how am I supposed to comment on the comms thread at half time ;)

    Don't like to worry people who use their phones to check the scores at half time but they ARE announced AND put up on the big screens - by me I just don't get that while the half time scores are up people are calling them up on their phones AND showing their mates - are the scores realler on a phone than on a scoreboard???

    IF we HAVE to have WIFI pre match, post match & halftime ONLY please

    p.s. I fondly remember the ABCD boards for half time scores - better not suggest bringing those back, had I ???

    Under 40 and no wifi for me - certainly not during the match, anyway. Understand people wanting to check bets/scores etc... but it's just unnecessary distraction from the match. Could possibly have something available pre-match and at half time and lock it back down during play, but public wifi is notoriously sluggish when masses of people batter the bandwidth at the same time so probably wouldn't be of too much use anyway.

    EE works fine if I need to check my acca - that's all I use my phone for at the match.
