Re: How did it go?
But I would also like a comparison to other games. How much data is used at a playoff game? I would assume it should be similar? But why doesn't anyone publish data on the data usage of the playoff games? What about other sports? Do the NBA finals not get the same kind of data usage among fans? Why not? Baseball? Is there no other sport that drews the same kind of crowd behavior? The Olympics? World Cup?

Re: i hope
I assume the people who go to the big game don't use the "free WiFi" because they can afford to use their "5G" (or 4G LTE) cell plan instead...

What is everyone at the superbowl doing???
> "Last year, Verizon supported 18.8 terabytes of data in its network within the stadium, while AT&T's network carried 7.2 Tbytes and Sprint's carried 9.7 Tbytes."

I'm a bit amazed at this figure -- because I'm left wondering what people are doing at the game, besides watching the game? Is everyone live-streaming to their friends? I assume no one is watching Netflix or other media while the game is going? Or is everyone watching the game on their phones while the real game is being played to get the commentary?

Re: How did it go?
Yes, I would also be interested to know what actually happened in and around the stadium. What a huge job those tech guy had to prepare and I wonder if the results might be hidden from view for proprietary reasons, but on the other hand if it all worked as plan what a great public relations opportunity for the providers.

How did it go?
Any news on how connectivity was at the big game? Were there any glitches or service outages? More importantly, was there service there, but it was so slow that it was like there was no service at all?

Re: i hope
@JohnDrake  the way size of the webpages today and  size of the hd videos it very easy to go over your data limit and end up paying a lot...  in many events I attended in North America "free Wifi." offers very low bandwich with very slow speed almost like dial up...

JohnDrake: I don't think football fans and drinking responsibly belong in the same sentence. :D

i hope
"Fans outside the stadium, there to absorb the atmosphere or watch in local bars, also contribute to data traffic"

 

I hope fans drink responsibly before taking their cell phones out into data traffic.

As Vice President of Global Healthcare at AT&T, Maria Lensing oversees the telecommunications operator's technology and professional services offerings across the spectrum of medical providers, from solo practitioners and walk-in clinics to giant hospital chains, medical-device vendors and consulting firms. Lensing also sees more interest from traditional service providers -- cable and telecom operators looking to expand or build relationships with their own medical communities, perhaps as an adjunct to smart-home successes or standalone.

Lensing, who took on this role almost a year ago in May 2018, oversees both the sales and technical teams responsible for developing growth initiatives for AT&T's Global Healthcare business -- including products, services and industry-specific solutions. She also very actively promotes business minority inclusion, education and female empowerment programs and has been recognized both within and outside AT&T. Some awards she's received include "Top 40 Under 40" and "Super Woman in Business" from the Memphis Business Journal.

Join Maria Lensing, VP of Global Healthcare at AT&T, on Tuesday, April 23 at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 p.m. PT, when she's the guest on BBWN Radio, hosted by Broadband World News Editor Alison Diana. Register now!

So far, the agenda includes a discussion of technologies such as fiber and 5G; defining the needs and solutions for a widely diverse range of customers; partnering for success in a typically slow-moving, budget-constrained market; learning and dispersing best practices from other verticals and within other business groups; promoting diversity and female empowerment when so many say they're doing so but so little has changed; and what she hopes to accomplish in another year in this role.

Register and post your questions for Maria on BBWN Radio's easy-to-use chat board. We will get to as many questions as possible. Please post questions before and during the broadcast. Once you've registered, you will be led to the chat board page. Talk to you on April 23!

Tune in to Broadband World News Radio on February 14 at 11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT / 4 p.m. UK when John Isch, Practice Director of the Network and Voice Center of Excellence at Orange Business Services, discusses use cases, ROI and misconceptions of software-defined wide-area networks, virtualization and cloud.

Just when you thought the answer to your next technology direction question was clear, the noise around multiple new technology options fills the Internet and airwaves. Multiple 5Gs are being deployed; there's CableLabs' 10G initiative; the ITU and IEEE are toiling around 50G PON – and we haven’t even talked about Wi-Fi6 yet! Is any of this real, do you have to pay attention or can you just let the dust settle and then decide?

Since waiting is often not the best option, let’s demystify technology options, their impact on your business, and how to prepare for whatever the future brings.

In this webinar, Service Providers will learn:

  • Current state of 5G and how it affects everyone, not only mobile network providers.
  • Latest technologies being developed and how they will benefit their networks and subscribers.
  • How to prepare their networks for the future – whatever it may hold.
