Just in Time for BCS, AT&T Adds 4G LTE to DAS at Sun Life Stadium

It isn’t Wi-Fi, but at least AT&T customers at the BCS Championship game next Monday should see an improved 4G LTE signal, thanks to an upgrade of the existing Distributed Antenna System (DAS) at Sun Life Stadium in Miami.

A local press release (no link) from AT&T’s Florida operations saluted the wireless upgrade, which was actually installed in time for the Jan. 1 Orange Bowl. According to the release, the 4G LTE upgrade was accompanied by more antennas, some facing outward from the stadium walls so that fans coming to the game wouldn’t find their signals lost. Here’s the money quote from the release:

“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.”
