AT&T has announced plans to be the first U.S. carrier to light up 5G at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas which hosts championship sporting events as well as the biggest music and entertainment shows in the world.
In fact, AT&T customers used more than 155 TB of mobile data – the equivalent of sending about 400 million selfies – this year alone at AT&T Stadium.
Igal Elbaz, SVP Wireless Technology, AT&T said, “5G is expected to alter the in-stadium experience in dramatic, exciting ways by blurring the physical and digital experience in ways that are simply not possible on today’s networks.”
Fans will be able to use 5G to take their stadium experiences to the next level. Ultimately, 5G might enable fans to blend their physical experience with virtual augmentation at AT&T Stadium. The planned 5G installation at AT&T Stadium is the first step toward making these entirely new connected experiences a reality.
