TDC's network is already deployed at two of Penn's properties.

Tillman Digital Cities (TDC) has announced a partnership with Penn Entertainment. The partnership will aim to see improvement in connectivity for Penn Entertaiment's casinos, hotels and gaming properties.

TDC will be looking to improve the in-building communications and 5G coverage within Penn Entertainment buildings.

The deal is to spread across the US, with it now being live at Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas and Argosy Riverside Casino in Missouri. TDC is a telecom infrastructure founded in 2020; it designs and operates indoor networks and infrastructure across venues across the US

Penn recently released its Q1 figures for 2023, reporting revenue of $1.67bn. Penn also completed a full purchase of Barstool Sports, having bought 36% of the company in February 2020.

The new deal will see TDC's Solid Alliance 5G Distributed Antenna System deployed across the buildings. 

TDC COO Joel McIntyre said: “We’re excited to partner with Penn Entertainment, and bring our top-of-the-line connectivity to all of their locations across the US TDC’s solutions for connectivity enable Penn Entertainment to better serve their employees and guests, creating a more seamless digital experience.”

Carlos Figueroa, VP of Infrastructure for Penn Entertainment, said, "We're committed to enhancing every guest experience. This was a key factor in our decision to work with Tillman Digital Cities.

"TDC cares deeply about the customer experience, which enables our venues to offer exceptional hospitality and consistent, best-in-class connectivity service to our guests."

Scott Deweese, SVP and GM, Solid Americas, said, “Seamless connectivity is the lifeblood of today’s hospitality experience, and we are gratified to support TDC in the delivery of this amenity for Penn Entertainment’s patrons."
