Those attending a sporting event at the Allstate Arena or a meeting at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center should soon be getting better cellphone service -- and should be able to surf the Internet, Rosemont village officials said.

The village board approved a site license agreement last week with Concourse Communications Group to provide distributed antenna system and public Wi-Fi service to the two village-owned venues. The services could later be implemented at MB Financial Park, according to Village Attorney Peter Coblentz.

The village will collect 75 percent of revenues for the cell antenna service, and 60 percent of revenues for Wi-Fi.

The contract is for five years, with the option of two additional 2-year terms.
