During the exciting 26-20 overtime win over the Green Bay Packers that sent the Arizona Cardinals to the NFC championship game, fans at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., used 2.9 terabytes of Wi-Fi on the stadium network, according to the Cardinals.

Mark Feller, vice president of information technology for the Cardinals, said that during the Jan. 16 game the network also saw 32,330 unique client devices attach to the Wi-Fi network, which Feller said was the highest such total ever and represented a nearly 50 percent take rate since the attendance that day was 65,089. Feller said the Wi-Fi network that day also saw a peak concurrent connected user total of 20,451.

The UoP stadium, which recently hosted the College Football Playoff championship, is still the holder of the single-day Wi-Fi data record, a number of 6.23 TB reached during Super Bowl XLIX last February. All eyes in the Wi-Fi world will be on Levi’s Stadium this Sunday, to see if the record Wi-Fi total number is eclipsed again.
