Verizon Customers at Super Bowl Generated 4 TB of Data

Verizon customers at the Super Bowl racked up more than 25 million wireless connections – nearly 25,000 per minute.

All of the tweets, texts, status updates, etc. sent by Verizon customers immediately before, during and after the game in Glendale added up to 4.1 terabytes of data, compared to 1.9 terabytes during the 2014 Super Bowl.

Verizon said its network engineers spent nearly two years preparing for the event, including quadrupling the 4G LTE data capacity at the stadium and at major venues throughout metro Phoenix, adding cell sites, small cell systems, indoor and outdoor Distributed Antenna Systems and rolling in mobile cell sites.
