AT&T Upgrades Its Network for Big Bowl Games
Leading communications company AT&T believes that the teams competing in the upcoming January 1 and January 7 college bowl games aren’t the only ones hoping to score big.
AT&T says it has made significant upgrades to its network at Sun Life Stadium in Miami to ensure customers have a winning wireless experience.
AT&T has revamped its Distributed Antenna System, or DAS, at the stadium by adding 4G LTE technology and additional antennas.
The upgrades are expected to more than triple voice and data capacity, as well as help increase coverage and data speeds inside the venue.
“We know football fans at the stadium will want to use their smartphones to share photos, videos and texts during the big games with friends back home,” said AT&T Florida president Marshall Criser. “The investment we’ve made in the upgrades at the stadium will help make that possible.”

AT&T 4G LTE is stated to be the latest generation of wireless network technology and provides several benefits for customers, including faster mobile Internet speeds, improved performance and new 4G LTE-compatible devices.
Additionally, AT&T has attached antennas to the outside of the stadium to expand coverage and capacity in the parking lot, where thousands will tail gate before the games. The additional capacity allows the sites to accommodate more traffic and helps improve voice and data connectivity for customers.
