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.

AT&T: Mobile Data Usage at Stadiums Soars to 1000s of GBs

In-stadium mobile data usage at college and professional football games is soaring to hundreds or thousands of gigabytes, according to newly published data usage statics from AT&T.   The data is derived from the more than 75 different stadiums where AT&T provides coverage via Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).

So far this football season across 333 games where it had DAS coverage, AT&T customers used more than 104.9 Terabytes of mobile data via the in-venue cellular networks. Data usage at professional football games outpaces college games.  Mobile users in Miami use the most data.
