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.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
