AT&T has upgraded its network inside and outside Miami's Sun Life Stadium
Sun Life Stadium in Miami is home to the NFL's Miami Dolphins, but is also hosting a couple of upcoming big time college football bowl games. The Discover Orange Bowl will be played on January 1st between Northern Illinios and Florida State University. Six days later, the Discover BCS National Championship Game between Notre Dame and Alabama will be played at the same venue. With around 150,000 fans
attending both gridiron battles, AT&T has upgraded its network by the stadium to make sure that its customers attending the games have no problem using their handsets.
According to AT&T, the changes will triple the voice and data capacity
of its network around the stadium, while widening coverage and increasing data speed. 4G LTE technology has been added to the coverage and antennas outside of the stadium will increase coverage in the parking lot.
"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. The investment we've made in the upgrades at the stadium will help make that possible."-Marshall Criser, AT&T Florida President
