In the spirit of the World Series that is almost upon us, RootMetrics, measured upload and download speeds based upon cell phone network signal strength in baseball stadiums across the United States. In their recent report, the winner was… Fenway Park in Boston!

RootMetrics describes their process as:
To give you a comparative view of how performance differs depending on which stadium you attend, we’ve ranked all 29 US Major League Baseball venues from highest to lowest for overall data network coverage. Our venue rankings are based on an average of all networks’ RootScores at a particular venue, weighted by the estimated national percentage of subscribers for each network. In other words, performance scores from networks that have more customers are weighted heavier than scores from networks with fewer subscribers.
Just in case you were curious, the worst mobile performance was seen at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. So if the Royals make it all the way to the World Series, be prepared for some slow Internet!
